Pairs Head

A large entry from across the club's squads brought some outstanding results in the Pairs Head, including nine pennants and a clutch of second and third places, and a great start to the new season.

The club's top-placed finishers were Nick Marriott and Murray Wilkojc, who were second overall and won IM2 2x. Also in the top ten were Sean Blake and Kieran Brown (fifth overall; second in Elite 2x), and Senior 2x winners Nathan O'Reilly and Niall Kenny.

Adam Ridler and Adam Lodygowski won Senior 2-, and were the third-fastest pair, while Jack Keech and Rob Hogan, fifteenth overall, were third in IM2 2x. Juniors Marcus and Luke were a very creditable twenty-second overall, as well as winners of J18 2-.

The Senior Women had three top-ten places: Mimi Carlton and Georgina Grandfield (fourth overall; third in WElite 2x); Rhona MacCallum and Katy Wilkinson-Feller (sixth, and unopposed in WSenior 2x) and Bethan Walters and Livs Uguz (second in WIM2 2x). Rachel Francis and Anna Terry were fourth women's pair, and third in WSenior.

The women's pennants went to Debbie Beadle and Kate Erickson in WIM2 2x, Katie Potter and Charlotte Dexter in WIM3 lightweight 2x, and Caroline Matthews and Rowi Mortimer in WIM3 2x. 

Masters Roger Swift and Peter Watts won G 2x, with a TSS/Tyne composite in second place, and Jo Al-Janabi and Kasia Lawrence took WF/G/H 2x. Mark Alloway and Ruth Bradbury, racing as TSS/Parr's Priory, were third in Mixed F/G 2x.

Wingfield Sculls

Mimi Carlton became the first TSS woman to race in the Wingfield Sculls when she took on the Championship Course on 13th October.

The four-boat women's race was won by Jess Leyden of Leander.



Two TSS vet men's eights took a trip down to Rouen in early October to race on the Seine, on the 7km round-the-island course beneath the spire of Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Rouen, the highest in France.

With the hotel just round the corner, the crews were called to a sumptuous breakfast by the stupendous sound of a carillon of fifty-six bells weighing in at 740 tons of iron and bronze. Nobody was late.

In bright sunshine and on an incoming tide with a following wind going upstream, the G eight reached the top of Ile Lacroix ahead of the E boat. By the time the crews returned the positions were reversed and only the sunshine remained favourable.

With just a single category for all masters, moral victories were easy to come by and attention turned to the evening's entertainment. This surpassed all expectations, with hundreds seated in a single room, excellent food, good service and an ear-splitting disco to follow, where moustachioed septuagenarian coaches were bodysurfed round the dance floor by their crews.

All in all, another great weekend and thanks to Nic for his superb organisation and to Putney Town for towing the boats. LW
