Big hats, designer dresses, striped blazers and plenty of Pimms can only mean one thing – Henley Royal Regatta! Last week Crewroom joined the throngs of spectators to pitch up alongside the beautiful riverside in Oxfordshire.
Remenham Farm trade village, we set up shop in what was our biggest stand to date. And, thankfully, customers loved our new range of products and new set-up with the women’s Rio range proving a big hit.
But it wasn’t all work and no play. Backstage we set-up our own BBQ and, at the end of long hard day, we cracked open the Pimms. We were also fortunate enough to watch some spectacular racing and a special congratulations must go to former Crewroom model – Tom Jeffrey – who was part of the Thames RC crew to win the Visitors Challenge Cup.
The Thames coxless four were a boat-length down to the crew from University of California when the Americans made a steering error and hit one of the wooden booms that line the course, almost capsizing and bringing their race to a dramatic end.
