Putney Town Regatta 2013

With the men's squad away at training camp in Plovdiv, Sons of the Thames Rowing Club still had plenty of representation at Putney Town Regatta. Three women's crews, a men's novice four and one Masters D single sculler, know to us as Dave Smith, left Hammersmith to do battle. Although all four crews fought their way through to the finals, we were denied a win despite some very close racing. After all the interest generated by the Olympics, novice racing seems especially competitive this year, but despite that the crews have demonstrated good boat speed and all are capable of winning this season. It was left to Dave to bring home a pot with a comfortable win in MasD 1x.
