The Tideway Eights Head of the River Race took place on Saturday 17th March on the River Thames from Mortlake to Putney in misty, damp conditions.

A strong international crew from the Czech Rowing Federation which included several world champion oarsmen wrested the first place away from last years winners Leander Club by a margin of just over 20 seconds with the Molesey Club crew following 5 seconds behind in third place. Both Alan Sinclair from Ross-shire and Sean Dixon from Edinburgh were members of the Leander Club crew which finished in second place and claimed the Page Pennant as the fastest GB crew.

The top finishing Scottish crew from Glasgow Rowing Club completed the 4 & 1/4 mile course in fine style to finish in 41st place recording a fine time of 18 minutes 50.19 seconds.
