Sadly, this week has been officially the last week of the 2011/2012 rowing season. That is not to say, Roehampton University Rowing Club will not continue to train and compete over the summer! Be sure to keep checking back for updates about our performance at this summer's regattas.
The main event this week was the unveiling of he names of two of our fleet of boats. The first, our club single scull, has been named LAURA after our coach during the 2010/2011 season, Laura Fisher, who really helped start the club on our current upward curve. See below for a photo!
The second boat, our club quad/four, previously named Kees Van Daam, has been re-named David Bedford. This is in recognition of Dave's (a current 3rd year) commitment to the club over his time with R.U.R.C. See below for a photo of Dave with his new boat.
The other big event at the club this week was our first ever annual Inter-Club Head Race Championships, where our crews raced against each other to be the best at Roehampton. I'm pleased to say the races were a success, and congratulations to all of the winners! Trophies and medals will be given out at our end of year meal in May.
