Triumph at Henley Royal Regatta

St Paul’s has won the Princess Elizabeth Cup at Henley Royal Regatta for the first time since 1997, beating Westminster by 1⅔ lengths in a performance that crowns an already outstanding year for our rowers.

Raced over five days, the regatta saw St Paul’s compete against top rowing schools from around the world. On the way to the final, we beat former winners Abingdon and old foes such as St Edward’s and Radley.

Victory at Henley caps our earlier achievement of topping the medal table at this year’s National Schools’ Regatta and again confirms our position as the most successful UK school for rowing in 2014–15.

This is the fifth time that St Paul’s School has won the prestigious Princess Elizabeth Cup. The cup was previously won in 1997, 1957, 1953 and 1950.

The St Paul’s crew (drawn from Years 12 and 13, Lower and Upper Eighth): Alfred Jacquemot, Bertie Woodward-Fisher, Harry Gething, Freddie Davidson, Seb Benzecry, Arthur Doyle, David Ambler, Marco Hughes, Vlad Saigau.
