The Haslam Trophy was presented by Penny Haslam (née Palfrey) in 1999. Penny began her rowing career at Thames RC in 1974. Sculling became her passion and she was well rewarded with wins in quads, doubles and singles, as well as eights and fours, in domestic regattas, head of the river races, masters and world masters regattas.

As a lightweight most of these events were raced against heavyweight athletes. Lightweight events did not exist for women until 1985 and not until 1996 in the Olympics.

Penny’s trophy is therefore given in support of lightweight women’s double sculling.

Known as the Elite Lightweight Double Sculls until 2018
