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. I am proud to say that our results thus far this season totally eclipses Roy’s results. Most importantly, we are hosting Barnes and Mortlake Regatta this upcoming Saturday at the Club. 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!

Gosh the only thing I was a little [...]

Make sure you tell friends to watch and advertise our club. Thank you to members to helped clear the lawn immensely appreciated. Last weekend saw the culmination of the various 8’s head. Congratulations to our neighbours QBC who had spectacular results in [...]

I am there in spirit with you and when the sun comes up a bit earlier I will be there maybe…! Another very busy weekend for Mortlake both in terms of club members and preparation for the Veterans Head we have several visiting crews and overseas visitors so please endeavour to make them extremely welcome.
