ABINGDON School celebrated two victories in high-class fields at the Wallingford Regatta, writes John Wiggins.

More than 500 crews competed in the near-perfect conditions on Dorney Lake.

And Abingdon School came out on top in their J16 eight and first eight in the junior category, where Radley finished second and third respectively.

Former Abingdon pupil and Olympian, Charles Cousins, won the Championship singles racing for his alumni club, Griffen.

Katie Greves, silver medalist at the Rio Olympics, returned to action in Headington School colours to win the Championship doubles with current pupil Mattea Wuethrich.

The latter also triumphed in the singles event, with Headington also victorious in the J16 quads and junior eights.

Radley College raced without Archie McChesney, who was part of the Great Britain junior eight crew which won gold on both days at the Munich Junior International Regatta.

Abingdon RC enjoyed success over the longer course at Evesham Regatta, with their Masters squad dominating.

They claimed victory in the E age group eight, the F coxed four and double, plus the younger, C double.

There were also wins in the Band 2 fours and WJ15 double scull.

Eleanor Sykes claimed double success in the J16 single and WJ15 double on Saturday.

City of Oxford Juniors notched 13 wins.

Oxford Brookes men were unable to defend their team title at the BUCS Regatta in Nottingham.

But even without their top crew, who came within half a second of winning the Windermere Cup in Seattle, they still claimed victory in the championships eights, along with the intermediate eight, fours and pairs.

Their women’s crew shared the team trophy with Newcastle University after triumphing in the championship lightweight quad and eights as well as the intermediate lightweight single and pair.
