Sons regain the Dewar Shield

The annual three way competition between the Hammersmith clubs: Sons, Auriol and Kensington and Furnival has been reinvigorated in recent years. Sons lost to Furnivall by one point in 2013, and there the shield stayed for two years because the fixture was abandoned in 2014 due to bad weather. This year, Sons mobilised every rower to put an extra eight on the water which, as it turned out, proved crucial. We won by a single point over AK who, it has to be said, clocked the fastest times for both the men's and women's eights.
