KINGS School sculler Laurence Dugdale returned from the Boston Marathon with a fantastic win in the annual 50k race.

He is still only 16 years old, but won the J18 category in three hours, 55 minutes and 35 seconds, missing the long-standing J18 record by only 20 seconds.

Dugdale was also the fastest single sculler on the day in all categories.

Tim Mitchell came third in the J16 category (4:30.25), and his younger brother Christopher - who also had to compete in the J16s because there were no single J15s - finished in a very creditable time of 5:03.52.

J18 competitor Richard Glasspool recorded a time of 5:16.15, and Robert Deamer was a little further back in 5:17.47 following an unfortunate collision and capsize.

Boy's Coach Chris Smith won the Senior 3 category in 3:57.29, some 15 minutes ahead of the field.

Fellow Coach Jerry Dale - competing in the Veteran F class - came in at 4:23.23.
