A sunny day on the Tideway saw three Cantabrigian scullers, John Hale (Senior Lightweight), Callan Swanson (Junior 18) and Susanna Holt (Women’s Master D), competing in the Vesta Scullers Head on Saturday. The Vesta Scullers Head is the largest single-division processional single sculls race in the world, with over 500 scullers competing over the 4.25 mile championship course from Mortlake to Putney.
Susanna won the pennant for the Women’s Masters D category in a field of 13 entrants, beating former Olympian Pauline Bird into second place by more than 15s. Furthermore, Susanna posted the fastest adjusted time of any of the 43 women Masters scullers by a margin of 13s. John sculled to 3rd in his category and Callan to 23rd in his.
