Gloriana's Outing At 2012 HRR

HTBS’s Hélène Rémond was lucky to be invited on board the press launch during the Gloriana’s outing on the regatta course at the Henley Royal Regatta. Hélène writes,

At 11 a.m. on Sunday, 1 July, the day of the Finals at the Henley Royal Regatta, 18 former Olympians representing Great Britain between 1948 and 2008 rowed the royal barge the Gloriana, which was the lead vessel at the Diamond Jubilee Pageant last month, past the regatta’s spectators. They were a great attraction on the river. A few members of the press have been invited to follow the row-past, being a good film and photo opportunity. My film and photographs can be seen above and below.

In the Gloriana Olympic crew were :

Louis Attrill who attended the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney
Chris Baillieu, 1976 Montreal and 1980 Moscow
Bill Barry, 1964 Tokyo
Guin Batten, 1996 Atlanta and 2000 Sidney
