I do hope you all had a good weekend. I thought I would share some jottings about our first foray on the Autumn Sculling Heads circuit – first of all thanks to all who participated in boat loading and looking after our valuable kit! The most important aspect of travelling to events. Please acknowledge the time that Merv spent driving he did not leave the head course until at least 5 pm and I would like to thank him personally on behalf of us all. We cannot compete or be prepared for these events without enormous back up whether its [...]
Dear All I very much hope you all had a great summer: it was a special one with the Olympics and the marvellous results for Team GB – we marked the occasion with our BBQ and thank you to all who assisted and made it such a great success. Before I turn to the return to Autumn/Winter training I would like to let the membership know that our much valued member Ken Williams has decided to step down as Club Rowing Safety Advisor from 30thSeptember 2016. September marks 60 years since Ken starting rowing at Horseferry Rowing Club. [...]
Dear All, Hope you are all well and getting excited about the Summer Racing season and the Euro Football Championships (or not!) – I am sure we will be watching some of the matches at the Club reminiscing about 1966 when we won something.

Very annoying that British Masters is also on that weekend – can everyone who is not racing please give as much support to the Regatta [...]

Thank you for the profuse outpouring of congratulatory presents of champagne and flowers which doubtless are in transit after the magnificent win at Twickenham Regatta on Saturday. Seriously please do not spend too much - but again if you want to be in contention for athlete of the year you know what to do! Turning to matters which are much closer to my heart we have had two weekends of racing which is marvellous - what is most encouraging is the massive steps forward which we as a club are making. Gosh the only thing I was a little [...]
