Fastest boat in Div 1 on 18 February 2017 - an IM1 eight from Cambois RC (photo: Al Johnston)

We ran the last Tyne Head on Saturday 18 February 2017, with BUCS 4s & 8s Head the weekend after. Tides were high of 3.99 metres at about 8.30am and low of 1.70 metres at about 2.40pm. Weather was good to us, bright and occasionally sunny. The wind was low to moderate.

We had 54 crews racing in Div 1 and 56 in Div 2, giving a fairly relaxed day.  Fastest crew in Div 1 was a Cambois eight racing as IM1 in 16:32.1. A Tyne ARC IM3 eight put in a good time of 17:16 (including a 10 second penalty for ungentlemanly language) to win their pots.

Fastest crew on raw times in Div 2 in 15:28.1 was an elite 4- from Durham University, with fastest women's eight an IM2 crew from Tyne ARC in 17:58.6 (0.4 seconds in front of a DUBC novice eight). On Masters adjusted times, fastest boat in the division would have been a DARC MasF eight in 15:24.5.
