Next Up Is ASR Nereus, A Dutch Under-23 National Crew, On Friday

Yale's eight made a strong opening statement on the first day of the Henley Royal Regatta in England. The Bulldogs cruised to a 1-2/3 length victory over Oxford Brookes University.

"Good start to the regatta for us," said Will Porter, The Friends of YWC Head Coach of the Bulldogs. "I liked the aggression, and the way we got after it down the course. It looked like a fun piece for them."

Yale, competing for the Remenham Challenge Cup, advances to race ASR Nereus, a Dutch Under-23 national crew, on Friday. The time of that race will be announced on Thursday night.

Yale also has a coxless four entered in the Town Challenge Cup at the Regatta. That crew races for the first time on Friday.
