Grand Challenge Cup Trophy

Henley Royal Regatta 2018 – Grand Challenge Cup

The Australian Eight produces a new record at Henley.

Even if you are just moderately interested in rowing – both these races are superb.

The National Training Centre is THE elite centre for mens Rowing in Australia. When Dr. Hooper rowed for Australia in the 90’s, they were based at the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS). Under direction of Australian Rowing a new centre has been established on the shores of Lake Burley Griffin in Canberra.

The men from the National Training Centre (NTC) Australia made it into the final by beating the British VIII. Well done to the boys from the National Training Centre in Canberra for their fantastic tenacity and skill.

One of the best races we have seen in Australian Rowing.

Wyfold Challenge Cup Trophy

Wyfold Final – Molesey v Mercantile | Henley 2018

Mercantile has only ever won one event at Henley Royal Regatta, and that was back in 1988.

Unfortunately, today was not the day for Mercantile. Seemed a little flat off the start and then failed to capitalise or show the aggressive and slippery style of former races.

Full credit to Molesy who had some very experienced campaigners with multiple attempts at winning Henley.

Again, very kind words from the commentary team at 1.45 regarding the heritage of Mitchell Hoper, Mercantile and Australian Rowing.

Henely at The Barrier

Mercantile v Bewdley – Wyfold | Henley 2018 Day 2

Mercantile put on a very dominant display against some previous Henley winners from Bewdley.

Very early lead to Mercantile by the Island and then settled for the paddle home.

Some entertaining commentary at 3.10 about Mitchell Hooper in the 3 seat who had a ‘brother’ (cousin) racing for Cambridge. Mitchell is apparently working as blacksmith on a beef farm. Not sure how he fits in time to study at Monash.

Great win for Mercantile today.

Henley Start Day 1

Mercantile v Strathclyde Park – Wyfold | Henley 2018 Day 1

The Mercantile four competing in the Wyfold Cup are:

  • Stroke – Angus Maloney
  • Three – Mitchell Hooper
  • Two – Jack Kelly
  • Bow –  Ben Canham

The four raced superbly today to easily win their first round. They flew off the start and settled down well many, many lengths in front.

The “Rowing Dynasty” discussion at 3.50 by the commentators is very generous to Dr. Hooper and the family. Much appreciated.
