Vesta Scullers Head

The club enjoyed great success at the Scullers Head, with one of its largest-ever hauls of pennants at this event.

The fifty-eight scullers in TSS colours - plus a few other members competing for their schools - accounted for almost 12 per cent of the field, and by far the largest entry of any club. 

Fresh from his win at GB junior sculling trials the week before, Laurence was the fastest TSS member overall, finishing fifth and the winner of J17. Niall Kenny was also in the top ten, while Tim Male finished eleventh and winner of Masters B.

Katy Wilkinson-Feller, winner of Senior, was second overall and IM2 winner Georgina Grandfield third; joining them in the top ten women were Mimi Carlton, IM1 lightweight winner, Katie Potter and Caroline Matthews.

Nathan O'Reilly was thirteenth and the winner of IM2, while club secretary and one-time TSS junior Eddie Beckett won Masters A and Jack Keech took IM1 lightweight. Olivia Uguz headed Women's IM1 and Sally Trump Women's Novice, while Izzy, the youngest competitor in the event, won Women's J16.

Finally, there was a first place finish for Vicky Sixsmith in the two-boat Women's Masters F/G.
