Veteran Fours Head

Racing in glorious sunshine the day after a very grey Fours Head, the club's masters also returned some impressive results.

Fastest crew of the day was the Masters B quad of Tim Male, Mark Mitchell, Mike Hennessy and Antony Smith, who finished almost eighteen seconds clear of the field.  

The day after their Fours Head sweep pennants, Rowi Mortimer and Caroline Matthews won in Women's Masters A quads, racing in a composite with Beks Edgar (Quintin) and Lorna Cardwell (Mortlake), while Judith Schulz had a second sweep win of the weekend, in a C coxless four along with Kate Grose, Lizzie Stutters and Kingston's Caroline Willett

Jo Al-Janabi, Kasia Lawrence, Kathryn Hickmott and Katie Robins had a decisive win in Women's Masters E quads, the club's third fourth successive win in this event (including a composite win in 2013). In Masters F quads, Vicky Sixsmith, Judith Behan, Kate Bridges and Zoe Burns were unopposed.

There was also a win in Masters Novice coxed quads as club president Guy Greaves, marking fifty years of coxing tideway heads, steered Nathan Townsend, Marcus Hine, Chris Taylor Reed and Conor O'Neill to a win over Globe.
