After a postponement we were finally able to hold the Richmond Rowing Club 2021 Presentation Night on the third of July.
We celebrated our Male and Female rowers and Coxswain of the year. These prestigious awards are determined through participation and success at regattas, club races and club time trials. The winners on the evening were:
Mal Scott Award – Male Club Rower of the Year – Dennis Beck
John Sawyer – Female Club Rower of the Year – Kirsty Fergie
The Don Edwards, Cox of the year award was won by Derek Begg
Female Masters Rower of the Year – Michelle Joy
Male Masters Rower of the Year – Leigh Sullivan
The President’s Award was presented to Jack Hellerstedt. Whilst Jack has only been a member for 2 years he has taken an active role coordinating the men’s squad, setting up the 8@8 session, weekly training plans and regatta entries. He is also always willing to jump in any boat to make sure crews get out and is frequently a late minute coxswain call up. Jack is also a great motivator to keep people engaged with the club on and off water.
The Hendley Family Mixed Quad Time Trial was presented to Dennis Beck, Geraldine Goss, Karen Doggett, John Carey and Derek Begg (coxswain).
The Keith Millar male coxed four Round the Island time trial was won by Dennis Beck, Liam Lovett, Ethan Lovett, Jon Roberts and Derek Begg (coxswain).
The Keith Millar female coxed four Round the Island time trial was won by Chelsea Crouser, Kirsty Fergie, Xanthe Hadfield, Melanie Perkins and Aline Dejeagher (coxswain).
The Jim Barton Female Tub Single time trial was won by Kirsty Fergie.
