Dewar Shield 2015

Sunday, 15th February 2015

The race for the Dewar Shield took place this Sunday between 1 and 3pm from Chiswick bridge to Hammersmith bridge. It's an annual "friendly" with our Hammersmith neighbours Auriol Kensington and Sons of the Thames to see who's fairing best in the run-up to the Tideway head races.

Furnivall were defending their title after winning the shield when the races last took place in 2013. Alas the shield won't be staying at 19 Lower Mall for this year. Many congratulations to Sons of the Thames who took the title this year, demonstrating good strength in depth with seven boats competing. Auriol Kensington came a close second, with 28 points; just 1 point behind Sons. Well done to AK for getting the fastest times in both categories.

A huge thank you to all organisers and volunteers who made this year's races possible.
