Its always a bit of a risk scheduling river events this time of year but the scullers got lucky and it was a lovely day yesterday for the nearly five hundred plus competitors in the Scullers Head 2008.
Always thought that sculling looks like more fun than rowing - they looks so elegant, skimming across the water like those insects that are light enough to float on water held up by its surface tension.
And unlike rowers where you have to follow the rate set by stroke you are in control. Maybe that's saying something about me, a budding solo sailing in waiting.
Alas no, like my sleep too much!
