Cygnet update 26th October
26th October 2015
On Saturday we held our annual lunch in the hallowed surroundings of Leander RC in Henley. Many generations of Cygnets present including Ronnie Lambe who joined the club in 1947, plus guests from BBL RC our guest speaker Robert Treharne Jones (The Voice of Rowing) and Tichel from Ruder Gessellschaft Benrath.
Katie M organised an all star crew packed full of ex captains to go out with Tichel on the Tideway at a very civilised hour in lovely autumn sunshine. Before that our GFAR grads were out again exploring previously unknown stretches of the river beyond Hammersmith Bridge and then rowing all 8 from Harrods back to the club and getting 300 or so strokes in in the process. Thanks to Robin (especially), Tom, Cris and Iain G for helping out with the outing.
Tuesday 7:15 Circuits with Maxi at Cavendish School, Edensor Road. Make up for last week by putting double the effort in.
