Wolfson often travels to British Rowing regattas outside of Oxford, especially during Michaelmas term and over the summer vacation. While the captains decide each year where to send their crews, some of the popular destinations include the Head of the River Regatta in London, Henley Town and Visitor’s Regatta in Henley, Maidenhead Regatta in Nottingham, Cambridge Autumn Regatta in Cambridge, and Kingston Regatta in southwest London.

For those who have not raced any of the big Tideway head races, they involve an infamous long wait on the water as hundreds of boats marshal up towards the start line and with only one boat being set off at a time, it can take hours to race. We arrived in London wrapped up warm for the cold, only to find that the rain had all but stopped and it was actually rather warm.
Whilst most university students were nursing their Halloween party hangovers from the night before, Wolfson ladies – clad in their signature floral leggings – were raring and ready to take on the journey to Henley-On-Thames for the Upper Thames Autumn Head.
