The Silver Sculls
The Weybridge Silver Sculls is the oldest sculling head on the non-tidal reaches of the Thames, having been founded in 1956. Many famous scullers have won the trophy including Sir Steve Redgrave, Guy Pooley (4 times winner), Chris Baillieu, Dan Topolski and Tim Crooks. The event was expanded a few years ago to include double sculls, and we now offer J14 coxed quads (boys and girls).
For many years the event was run more or less single-handedly by the late Derek Roy, but these days the work is shared amongst a committee:
|Chairman :||Anne Morris|
|Chief Umpire :||Ashley Tilling|
|Chief Marshal :||Paul Gray|
|Chief Time-keeper :||Graham Cocks|
|Safety Adviser :||Graham Campbell|
|Secretary :||Anne Morris|
|Entries :||Rachel Kornberg|
|Volunteer co-ordinator :||Rachel Kornberg|
|Car and Trailer Parking :||Paul Thomas|
|Catering :||Laura Cowie|
|External liaison :||Ashley Tilling|
who, together with some 50 umpires, marshals, time-keepers and other helpers, keep the event running smoothly.
