1910s

This decade opened with high expectations and the official club photograph of 1910 conveys an image
of a club anxious to spread its wings and make its mark on the wider rowing world. However, successive overtures to the ARA were rebuffed and the outbreak of the First World War proved highly disruptive. Club president Etherington-Smith met with an untimely demise in 1913 and was succeeded by 'Rudy' Lehman, another rowing notable. Normal club business did not resume until mid-1919.
