The Head of the River Fours is in the books, and the results are in—Leander was the overall winner of the event, but it was Oxford who stole the show. The Dark Blues, with a crew stroked by Constantine Louloudis, marched through the field to finish ninth overall, winning the Elite 4+ event, and finishing ahead of a good many Elite 4x- crews along the way. Here's a link to a full set of race photos thanks to Rowing Photography UK.
No win but great to race @HOR4s. Congrats to the winners E4+ @OUBCsquad @OubcPresident @clouloudis. Best of luck for the @BNYMellonRaces

The Head of the Hooch has seen windy conditions Saturday morning cancel a number of events, but the Texas Longhorns are making the best of the situation in true rower fashion:

And, it looks like the Washington Huskies will have a ringer on board for the Head of the Lake, set for tomorrow in Seattle.
