Sunny Sunday In September

It was great to see so many people out on the river on Sunday in beautiful conditions for this season’s first time trial. The black and gold was an impressive site both on and off the water.
A big thank you to Paul for capturing the event and the attached photograph of the membership. I also want to pass on my thanks to all those who showed the great RRC spirit by volunteering to help run the event Justin, Kathy, Tom, Gerry, Carolyn, Claire and Vicki.
Also a special mention to Dennis’s for his cameo in the women’s quad, our double scull of Michelle and Corrine who were the only crew to navigate the 7km course coxless and Matt from Learn to row who subbed into a boat after only 3 lessons! He was one of 12 to do their first club time trial on Sunday and I think the day was a big success.
The official times are listed below next to the relevant cox, line honours go to the men’s coxed quad at 34.51. So that’s the time to beat…..
