QHT supports Quintin Boat Club’s annual Quintin Head


The Quintin Head, the first of the winter Tideway Head races held on 20 January 2024, was as ever oversubscribed with 300 eights rowing, of these over 50 % represented schools or university crews. Despite the red flag on most of the Thames and the imminent arrival of storm Isha, QBC successfully ran the Quintin Head with a full programme of racing and after meet festivities.

The development and regeneration of the facilities on the QHT Chiswick, Southern Site, particularly the car parking, has made a huge difference to the capacity and access to the Boat Club especially on race days, which has meant that the boat trailers of the visiting schools and colleges from as far afield as Monmouth, Bristol and Oxford can easily be accommodated.

The Trustees of the Quintin Hogg Trust support youth rowing by presenting a prize for the best combined overall results for Junior crews from a club/school of 2 Cox Boxes - an electronic device used in competitive rowing that combines a digital stroke rate monitor, stopwatch, and voice amplifier. The Trustees congratulate the following crews.
