Notice when the crews are side by side how cleanly the Drehers come out of the water compared to the more 'splashy' oars used by the other crew.

Peter Spurrier photographed the crew on each outing during the week leading up to the Head of the River Race.  Here are a couple of his photo galleries and some fabulous images
