History lesson

27th September 2017

If anyone fancies this, Paul Rawkins is already book-in.


Hope you're well and that the rowing season is getting off to a good start!I'm just getting in touch from the River & Rowing Museum to let you and Cygnet Rowing Club know about our exciting Rowing History event here in November.

'Backsplash: The Rowing History Conference' is going to take place on 3rd & 4th November and we're looking forward to welcoming Daniel James Brown, author of the New York Times bestseller 'The Boys in the Boat' as our keynote speaker.

Other confirmed speakers include: Andrew Triggs Hodge, triple Olympic gold medallist rower; Mike Spracklen, international rowing coach; Colleen Orsmond, Olympic rower, Rowing Event Manager at Rio 2016 and World Rowing's Sport Director; Peter Mallory, coach, published author and rowing historian; Jeremy Randall, Leander Club President and former Master of the Company of Watermen; and Lisa Taylor, rowing history PhD student at Manchester Metropolitan University and the River & Rowing Museum.

I hope this sound of interest! Further information and booking details can be found on the event webpage: rrm.co.uk/backsplash
Various ticketing options are available including: whole conference packages, single-day or dinner only tickets and tickets for Daniel James Brown's talk only.

Since this event may well be of interest to others at Cygnet Rowing Club, I'm wondering if you might able to spread the word and let your rowers know about this event?
If so, that would be brilliant! We've created an event poster that you can share by email, facebook or even print out and pin onto a club noticeboard: backsplash.link/poster

Anyway, any and all help will be much appreciated!
Look forward to hearing from you, and hope to see you at the conference in November.

Kind Regards
