Tim Koch is on Hammersmith Bridge with his camera – again.
The Vesta Scullers Head is the largest single-division processional single sculls race in the UK and, allegedly, the world. First held in 1954 and open to everyone from novices to internationals, this year’s race saw 459 scullers start (and 452 finish) the 4.25-mile Championship Course, Mortlake to Putney.
For the second year, the race was held in mid-September rather than the previous November/December time and the change brought the hopes for result of warm, calm weather. The results are online.
Great set of photos, Tim. Thanks for posting.
I find it unbelievable that from a free start of a 4 1/4 mile race , any one can separate two scullers by .30th of a second !
