The Pairs Head is the proper kick off to the rowing season, wouldn’t you agree? It’s the race that tells you once and for all that summer really is over and the Head season has begun. A chance to see how effective your summer cross-training really was. . .
This year Vesta fielded six crews in the Pairs Head of the River. Alex Bennett and Tom Foad scored our best result in their first Pairs Head coming 58th overall (out of 470 entrants) and 4th in the IM2.2- category. Nice work!
Second across the line for Vesta was Mike Cannon racing in a Vesta/Army composite, who came 78th overall.
Not to be outdone, Vesta President Jock McKerrell – who is clearly sneaking in some unauthorised training for the Scullers’ Head – doubled up with Michael Maynard to race a Masters F 2x in 18:27.34.

Thanks also to those who volunteered in launches and timing.
