Hampton Small Boats Head is a fantastic event run by Hampton School over 3000m downstream on the Hampton stretch of the River Thames. There was a large entry from Headington with crews entered from the J15, J16 and Senior squads. Hampton Small Boats Head attracts a very high standard of opposition so it is a great chance for us to race some strong opposition.
