Boat naming ceremony 2010
On Saturday was the club summer BBQ and boat naming, attended by many of the club. We were lucky enough to have a period of sunshine whilst a number of boats were named, and local councillors attended the ceremony. The boats named were: –
|Martyn Silvester:||men’s Empacher coxless four|
|Sheena Craig:||women’s IRS coxless four|
|Ben Melham:||men’s IRS coxless four|
|Lucy Brennan:||women’s Janousek pair|
|Brian Day:||men’s Janousek pair|
|John Wood, Tony Allen and Peter Hilditch:||club singes|
It was very nice to be able to remember Martyn at the ceremony, and members of his family were able to raise a toast to him and put his last bottle of Sloe gin to good use. The event was covered by Richmond & Twickenham times Rowers name new boats during special ceremony.
The Summer BBQ followed and was spent dodging the showers but a good time was had by all.
