A cheeky reproduction of some remarks Overheard at Henley Royal Regatta shared elsewhere on the global interwebs
Yesterday, from a commentator: “For a youngster there’s nothing better than beating a guy with a beard.”
And from Rachel Quarrell – rowing journalist
“Ah, only the two stone weight disadvantage then…. Does that mean you give us a two-length head start?”
“In tones of faint outrage from the boat tents area, from a forty-something blazeratum… “I’ve got teenage sons racing here now, you know.”
“In The Press Box looking at the poles in the princess grace final academic association of physical education Warsaw Warsaw and Club Wioslarki Liverpool in Grudziadzu…..”there’s a flight of high scoring scrabble words in that.”
“When the four of us won the Wyfolds in 1946 we had four oars – now some of the boats appear to have eight.”
Someone is going to lose their Stewards Enclosure membership over this I think. A first for Stewards?
