Although the "Dastardly" Thames Senior Open crew was the fastest in the race this year, more than half of its crew was substituted after entries closed. This means that, as well as being ineligible for the Senior open pennant, the crew was also ineligible for the overall winners pennant. Unfortunately our results computer software did not cater for this circumstance and showed Thames as pennant winners. The overall winners are in fact crew number 2, Tideway Scullers School Elite. Apologies to all concerned and commiserations with Thames RC for raising false hopes. The computer software has now been corrected.

The organisers would like to thank all competitors and volunteers for taking part this year, in extremely trying weather conditions. The cold affected the timing teams just as it did those on the river, and this resulted in a set of timings that needed a lot of scrutiny before a complete and accurate set of results could be published. Let us hope it's not quite so cold next year!
