Proud Papa Update - Henley, Day One

The Henley Regatta got under way for Jaime and Kelly today, and, well, three out of four is pretty good, in my books. The girls each had two races and ended up moving ahead to the semi-finals in three of the four races.

By the way, I'll be spending a lot of time this week at the Henley, so don't expect a lot of other stories from me for the rest of this week. When I'm not at the race course, I'll be finishing up packing. By this time next week, we'll be in Louisville, dropping Kelly off at her new home!

So if you don't have a burning desire to be up-to-date on my daughters' activities at Henley, feel free to take a pass on this blog for a few days. For the rest of you, here we go!

Kelly moved on to Wednesday's semi in the Junior Womens Single, but her four just missed out moving through in the Junior Womens Four by finishing third. Because of the number of entries, only the top two boats in each heat advanced.

Jaime advanced to Wednesday's semi-finals in both her Senior B Lightweight Womens Single and Senior Lightweight Womens Double, thanks to a first place showing in her single and a tight third in her double, with her partner Lauren Chewter. In Jaime's races, the top three boats qualified for the semi's.

The action continues for the rest of the week. Here is the updated Henley schedule for Jaime and Kelly. If you want to watch the results live, go to the Henley website and click on the Live Results button.
