The Long Distance Sculls is one of the first head races in the new rowing season and, as ever, proved very popular, with a high number of entries from all over the country racing in single, double and quad sculls over a 4250m course. It was particularly pleasing to see such a high number of junior entries - the enthusiasm and quality of these young crews bodes very well for the future of the sport. Veteran crews, from age 27 to over 70, proved that there's still plenty of oomph at the other end of the age spectrum too! WRC members celebrated wins in 12 categories.

Wallingford Rowing Club relies on events such as this to help fund the club and strengthen links with the community. Club captain Caroline Greves said, "We're really grateful to all our members and friends who supported the event brilliantly. From baking cakes and making bacon butties to umpiring and helping crews on and off the water, everyone did a great job. It's also wonderful to see so many local people joining us to cheer on the racing. We can't promise such good weather for Wallingford Head of the River Race on December 8th but we can guarantee that the racing will be just as exciting."
