Walton Small Boats Head

Fifty-five TSS boats, plus a composite with Quintin, raced across the four divisions of Walton Small Boats Head, and bade a very competitive farewell to 2016.

There were eighteen first-place finishes, twelve seconds and five thirds - and great performances from everyone who took part.

In doubles (with 266 entries), the fastest crew was the junior boat that took the J18 pennant and finished second overall; two other TSS crews finished in the top ten, and there were also wins in Novice and J14. Racing in division 1, Caroline Matthews and Beks Edgar (Quintin) were fastest women's double overall and winners of Masters A. Then, in division 2, they won WIM1 in the second-fastest time of the day. Third women's double overall was the WJ18 crew.

The club fielded the fastest of the thirty-eight pairs racing, winning Elite and finishing sixth overall. The Senior pennant, and fourth-placed pair, also went to the men's squad.

In singles (266 entries), there was a Scullers 1-2-3: Laurence repeated his Scullers Head success as the club's fastest sculler (and an impressive thirteenth overall), just ahead of Sean Blake who won Elite and then IM2 winner Lloyd Seaman. Jack Keech was eighth overall and winner of IM1, while just outside the top ten were Eddie Beckett and Charlie Clarke, winners of Masters A and Senior respectively. From the juniors, Luke won IM3, Will J15 and Albie J14. Charley was the fastest TSS woman, coming fourth overall and second in WJ18, while Caroline Matthews was seventh woman and winner of WIM3.
