Congratulations to all the winning crews!
The usual verification checks of the winning crews highlighted concerns with the entries from one club which subsequently led to queries over a second. As a result, nine crews from two clubs have been disqualified from Hammersmith Head due to undeclared substitutions. Please click below to see a full statement from the committee.
