Embracing winter at the Upper Thames Autumn Head

Autumn Head

There was certainly a wintry dip in temperature at a very breezy Upper Thames Autumn Head on Sunday, but we were on hand to help some shivering and soaked rowers!

The event, which has been running for over 30 years and has grown in popularity, saw its biggest entry of 300 boats taking part this year.

Previously dominated by school entries, the event is seeing more clubs keen to take part and there was a strong showing from tideway club Thames RC who rowed the speediest time of the day in the club eights category.

Our events staff learned this year that high-viz kit is growing in demand, and on Sunday many rowers were checking out our JL unisuit, with many claiming club rules have changed and it is now a requirement to wear high-viz kit on the water.

Luckily, Crewroom has taken note and created some new high-viz kit to make sure you can be spotted!

Crewroom favourites - The Backdraft Top and The Fuel Top - now come in a luminous shade and are available in-store and online, so check them out today!
