Captains Message – FANTASTIC WEEKEND 7-8 November

Fellow Members, When I went to the Club on Saturday morning I looked out at the Thames and thought not a cat in Hell's chance of seeing our marvellous girls finally showing what they are capable of - here is a secret I even booked to see James Bond film in the afternoon so convinced of my judgement that the race would be cancelled (members may wish to note) So when I watched the crews take off in the most inclement conditions my jaw hit the deck !!
