Scullers head 2013

As a break from the normal science related posts on the blog, I thought I would post about some of my extracurricular efforts. Last weekend I took part in the Scullers Head on the Thames in London. For those who aren’t familiar with the Scullers Head, it is raced over the same course as the Oxford/Cambridge Boat Race (just about 5 miles) – but without seven other people in the boat to help you out or a small person sitting in the stern shouting at you to go faster. Definitely in the top five most painful things I have done when the return trip from Putney (where the race finished) to Mortlake is taken into account. Photo below.
