HoRR – A personal perspective

Matt, who came over from Australia having been a keen surf rower in Sydney, joined Putney Town RC last August and rowed in the Men’s Head of the river race in the first VIII. He wrote about his experience of the head race and provided the photos in the album below: –

We have just had a week of awesome sunshine, the spring is here, the days are getting longer and the weather couldn’t have been better for the HORR, the biggest and last head race before the regatta season starts for the summer. It even felt like I was making progress with my tan!

I can’t tell you how much fun I had – the race was excellent, the crowds fantastic, the company brilliant and the social afterwards absolutely unreal. Joining Putney Town Rowing Club was quite clearly one of the best decisions I have made since coming to London.
