Gloucester Rowing Club is one of the oldest established rowing clubs in Great Britain and is now based on the Sharpness-Gloucester canal where it enjoys one of the longest stretches of unlocked water in the country. It has enjoyed considerable success both at a local and national level over the years and a number of National Squad members started their rowing careers at Gloucester.
The Gloucester Hartpury crew of Hannah Cooper, Zoe Adamson, Holly Huggins and Georgia Martin have won the Bea Langridge trophy (Junior women's quad) at Henley Women's Regatta 2017.
Coached by Will King, the crew broke a course record against Sydney RC in the semi-final and Isle of Ely in the final. The trophy was previously won in 2013 and 2014.
Gloucester Hartpury crews are now unbeaten at Henley Women's Regatta for five years.
