Firstly a very Happy 95th Birthday to club president Nina today. It was fabulous of you to wow the crowds at our regatta on Saturday with your row past with Sarah Vine – in a very challenging blustery wind.

Next a big thank you and well done to the many people from the club who helped make Saturday such a club success. And thanks to the visiting clubs who made for such a great atmosphere (including cheering Nina onto the water).

One of the highlight results of the day was by Chiswick School – our local school – who boat from next door and have only recently returned to rowing. They won WJ154x+ – the school’s first win for over 25 years.

There were also some notable club wins over the weekend. Daisy and Steve won Open Masters E2x on Saturday (our regatta didn’t offer mixed) – the all male crews they beat may have been a bit surprised.  And then on Sunday Daisy and Ed Wild duly won Women’s and Open Masters D1x at Reading Amateur Regatta. Congratulations all.
