    We got a message from Debbie Blackmore “Rebecca – Best description of steering a Tideway Head I’ve read yet. I particularly like the way Martin explains visualizing other eights between you and various bank landmarks.

    Now – has he got similar instructions for rowing it reverse – Putney to Chiswick? Pretty sure 2017’s Vesta Vets is going to be run backwards on the flood tide. Or is it as simple as just following these instructions backwards? ”

    And the answer is no there is no reverse steering. But I asked Martin and he just said the boat positioning is the same, you just need to read from the bottom to the top of the page!

    Best wishes to all competitors.
