Men's Masters squad at Vesta Vets
Sorry, bit of catching up from a couple of weeks ago. Tyne ARC's Men's Masters squad were rowing in the last big head race of spring 2018 on the Tideway (i.e. the tidal Thames) in March - in the Vesta Veteran's Head of the River Race. This was on Sunday 25 March, the day after the O&C Boat Races (backwards on the same course) and our own Pont Junior Head up here.

The Men's Masters 'A' eight rowing up to the start on the Thames at Vesta Vets on 25 March 2018 .....
We had two crews entered, both in Masters D (avge age 50-54). The 'A' crew in the yellow boat had an exceptional race and came in at 31 on time adjusted for age, having started at 46. They beat many younger crews even on raw time and thankfully for them all of the women crews (though not by much). Their time was 20:00.2, adjusted to 19:08.2. Category winners Henley RC/Thames RC came in at 19:04.1 and 18:12.1. Tyne were at 6 in a category group of 17.

..... and the 'B' eight ditto
The 'B' crew in the black boat started at 47 but slipped back to 103 at the finish in a time of 21:24.1, adjusted to 20:32.1. This was only 01:23.9 behind the yellow boat, so it must have been a avery competitive race overall with not much between many crews. The 'B' crew were 14 in the category. There are some better but watermarked pics here for the 'A' crew and the 'B' crew.
