The Wingfield Sculls is one of the most prestigious events for British club scullers. Raced on the Tideway head course it has been raced since 1830 as an annual event for men and, since 2007 also for women. See link for full results, history and background to Mr Wingfield, the founder.

Raced yesterday, the conditions were blustery and the water was quite choppy.

Grant Craies was at Putney (servicing Rowperfects) and took this photo of Alan Campbell leading Mahe Drysdale (Tideway Scullers' School) and Graeme Coleman (Nottingham and Union RC) along the moored boats.

British Rowing were quick to claim credit with a press release about the results. And the Telegraph has full timing results.

How about getting some more club scullers to enter next year? Graeme shows us how great it is to line up with world champions in a race that is open to the unexpected (as any race on the Tideway can be). And why don't more national squad members participate?
