Video Of The Week: Abingdon versus Belmont Hill, Henley Royal Regatta

This is one for the ages. As anyone who has raced at Henley Royal Regatta knows, it's a long course, usually made even longer by headwinds and current. While Belmont Hill grab the early lead, Abingdon's coxswain does an outstanding job, keeping his crew long, focused, and just the right amount of informed, timing the charge perfectly in what was one of the closest races at the regatta that year (though it always seems to come down to inches on the Thames—just look at Harvard's win in the Ladies' Plate over Leander last summer!). 

And, speaking of Henley, we're already thinking about just who might be among the top contenders for a little red box this year—more to come on that front soon.

Thanks to Duncan for sending it our way!
