Tideway Scullers School coach Bill Barry has dreamed up a fabulous crew to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the club entering crews to the Head of the River Race. The club was formed by top scullers who competed against each other for national squad places and traditionally formed an eight for the Head out of the top 8 fastest single scullers.
Taking this as his inspiration, Bill has chosen a crew from the fastest 7 scullers in the World at last year’s Beijing Olympic Games.
His crew will be:
- Ondrej Synek
- Olaf Tufte
- Mahe Drysdale , New Zealand
- Marcel Hacker , Germany
- Lassi Karonen , Sweden
- Alan Campbell , Great Britain
- Tim Mayens , Belgium
Cox – Ali Williams
Rowperfect UK was approached to support the crew and will be providing a for the race. We hope to publish the race data and split times / speeds / distance moved per stroke afterwards as a record of the event.
