The Story
This event was hosted by the Eton Vikings on Eton College's stretch of the Thames in full view of the battlements of Windsor Castle. The event is free, provides food and uses no stake boats to start its 800 metre races. All boats are loaned by the College and entry is always guaranteed to anyone turning up on the day.

The Cardinals provided a turnout of sixteen competitors and many more supporters. Tim Male brought in the sculling pennant in a race not too far fetched from his World Championship performance a couple of days before! The Club subsequently proceeded to the Grand Final and swiped the Victor Ludorum from several years of Viking domination.
