Near perfect weather and rowing conditions prevailed for Thursday's racing at the Royal Canadian Henley Regatta in St. Catharines. Two Hanlan crews advanced from the heats to the semi-finals in their events. Oksana Wankiewicz and Heather Noble finished 3rd in the Under 23 Womens Lightweight Double to advance. They were just 3/10ths of a second out of second place in their heat. Also advancing were Mauricie Summers and Tessa Buchan in the Under 19 Womens Pair. In previous day's racing Mauricie also advanced to contest the semifinal in the Under 19 Womens Single.
The sole final held today featuring a Hanlan sculler was the Senior Mens Single in which Alex Soutter placed fourth. Alex was last year's Henley champion in the event. He is currently featured on the poster for the Head of the Charles regatta to be held in late October in Boston.
