Sculling Courses

Andrew Eames reports on the Easter Alec Hodges Sculling Course:

Club regulars would have noticed that the first Alec Hodges course of the year took place from 28th March to 1st April. For the previous two years we've had brilliant early season weather for this Easter course, but this time we had Storm Katie on the first day, and a raging torrent for most of the week, with the landwater coming over Teddington weir at 270 cubic metres/second, four times faster than average.

These are not ideal conditions in which to learn to handle a single scull for the first time (as was the case with most of the course participants). Nevertheless, thanks to the expertise of the coaches by the end of the week we held both a time trial and side-by-side racing on turbulent tides.

As you might expect, many experienced the Tideway from all possible angles during the course, including one sculler who recorded his 360-degree eskimo roll with a camera mounted on his stern.

The next Alec Hodges courses are in the summer, when the river should be a lot more friendly. Please see our Sculling Courses section for details.

Many thanks to Stefan Paetow for kindly sharing his video.
