Upper Thames masters dominate their age group
Published 09/12/13



AN Upper Thames coxed four won the Masters C event at Sunday’s veterans fours head of the river race on the Tideway course in London.

In winning their event, the crew of John Ewans, Alex Jessel, Jon Thornber and Pete Jacobs and cox Claire Sweeney were also the fastest coxed boat of the day, beating crews more than 20 years younger than themselves.

More than 220 crews entered the race and age categories ranged from 27 to 65 years old.

This year the time trial race was held on the ebb tide over 6,000 metres between the mile post at Barnes and the finish at Barkers rails between Mortlake and Kew. In the same category, another Upper Thames crew in the coxless fours of Nick French, Gareth Morris, Peter McConnell and Nick Horne steered an exemplary course in testing conditions to record a 40-second victory.

Overtaking their main opposition within the first third of the race the crew recorded a good result and were in amongst the much faster quadruple scull crews at the end, coming in 12th overall.


A third Upper Thames crew was entered in D coxless fours for crews no younger than 50. The lightweight crew of Richard Knight, Jim Wetherell, Clive Cooper and Dave Hope contained two oarsmen in their first race for many years. In a tough category a result of fifth was a good performance.
