Happy New Year!

First off, happy new year, and welcome back to rowing after the Christmas break, which I'm sure has ruined everyone's fitness.

Since my last post the club have competed in the BUCS Indoor Rowing competition at St. Mary's, placing very well, especially from some of the freshers. I'll edit them in once I find the actual times and places. There were also the club's yearly fancy-dress Christmas races, and a selection of Hettie's 600(!) photos will grace the blog in time.

Outside of the sport, the team have been models as the April team for the Roehampton Student Union's naked calendar, raising money for the three RAG charities of the 2012/2013 year, and our five-a-side football team (which is made up of more footballers than rowers) won the University's tournament last term.

This year we've got a few races to train for and look forward to, including Weybridge Head on the 19th of January, Quintin Head on the 26th, a trip to Peterborough for BUCS on the 16th of February, followed by the Women's Hammersmith Head on the 24th, so expect to see us out on the river burning off our Christmas dinners!
