Putney Town’s mens and womens squads are currently looking to recruit both experienced and new coxes to steer them to success. Experienced coxes will find enthusiastic and competitive crews with ambitions on Henley and the major regattas. Newer coxes will be given full support from coaches, strokemen and other coxes at the club to help them progress towards the top boats.
In addition, we’re also like to hear from experienced coxes who would be willing to help out on a more occasional basis, but currently feel unable to give a squad full commitment.
The men’s squad at Putney Town is also kicking off the new season with an open squad meeting to be held on Wednesday 9th September in the club bar at 20:30. Please contact Mens Captain Peter Rossi firstname.lastname@example.org 07983 325 992 or just turn up on the night.
In 2008/09 the Senior Men’s rowing squad qualified a Thames Cup 8 at Henley for the third year running, and were competitive at IM1/2, including wins at Marlow, Kingston and Oxford City regattas. 13 of the last two Henley crews are back for 2009/10 and we have over a dozen boats suitable for the squad. Our goals for 2009/10 are for the 1st 8 to finish top 100 at HORR and to qualify two boats for Henley Royal.
Coaching for the Men’s squad is provided by James Davey and Andy Holmes MBE. The squad attended an overseas training camp in Banyoles and has access to excellent equipment, with recently purchased eights and fours.
In addition, we are always keen to recruit coxes and will provide full training for steering on the Tideway and club membership is also free for coxes.
