Scullers Head results

On Saturday 8th December 2012, 9 MAABC scullers took part in the annual Scullers Head, racing in singles from Chiswick to Putney.

Full MAABC results were as follows: Lisa Kallal W.MasB 23:53.17 2nd in category, 28th woman overall Gemma Peck W.IM2 24:01.56 5th in category, 37th woman overall Anna [...]
