It's been much quieter than hoped on the victory front this month thanks to the weather, several events having been forced to cancel by wind. These included our own Tees Long Distance Sculls and Small Boats Head on October 13th of course, followed by Wansbeck LDS and SBH on the 27th.

All has not been completely lost, however, so here are the wins:

Saturday 6th October – Tyne Long Distance Sculls and Tyne United Small Boats Head

Op.Mas.E/F/H.4x – Ralph Pickles, Tony Stocking, Bob Bainbridge and Chris Kenyon (H)

Op.Mas.C/E/F/H.4x- Ralph Pickles, Julian Wilkinson, Bob Bainbridge and Chris Kenyon (H)This crew were also 5th fastest boat out of a field of 46 of all ages, a particularly notable achievement when you consider they average over 70 years old!

Very well done to all concerned!
