Congratulations to our local rivals Auriol Kensington on winning the Dewar Shield 2018, and thanks to Furnivall for running it.
The three clubs fielded 18 eights, which was an achievement in itself. [Ed: It also explains the lack of a photo: our cameraman was required as a last-minute substitute.] Conditions were fast with times for the Mortlake to Hammersmith course ranging from 11:14 to 11:47. AK Womens 1 were the most impressive crew finishing 4th overall. The Sons senior crews achieved respectable times but our best performances came from the Veteran and Novice crews. The event will help everyone involved to prepare for the forthcoming Head Races.
