Six of the Sons Mens Masters entered the Scullers Head this year. This has been one of the toughest events in the rowing calendar since it was rescheduled from April to December. The 2017 race was no exception. Early starters had little help from a slack flood tide over the course from the Mile Post to Chiswick Staithe. Later starters had to endure a numbingly cold wait before racing and were still showing the effects as they passed Sons. Congratulations to Mirko for finishing first and fastest of the Sons scullers in a time of 19m44s. And also to Pete, Greg, Dave, Tim and Bruno for rising to the challenge: four miles flat out in a single is very demanding both mentally and physically.
