Mirko, Dave, Tomaso and Pete won their pennant at the Veteran Fours Head, holding off strong opposition from City of Cambridge and Las Vegas Institute of Sport. It was a fine day for a head race, sunny with just enough breeze over the flood tide to bother those unaccustomed to the Tideway. Six Sons crews got to the start line despite boat damage, work pressure and crew illness. (Thanks to Anna for subbing in as a launch driver at the last minute.) The sculling crews all avoided humiliation and the sweep crews raced well: the WMasC4+ were 3rd in their division, the MMasC4- 2nd and the MMasA4- 1st.
