November 8th gave us a strong tail wind to Hammersmith Bridge, where it changed to a head wind, kicking up lumpy water down to Putney. Conditions like these are nothing new to us, and may have helped a number of the Sons crews who competed. The stand-out result was the Vet A coxless four who won the category pennant. The crew contained three who've learned to row at the club, one just last season. Also worth a mention, is the Vet D 4x crew who finished second in category, just eight seconds behind national champions Bewl Bridge.
