This weekend a squad of rowers from the club are travelling to London to take part in the Vesta Rowing Club Veterans Head of the River Race on the Thames.
Cox is Mathew Burnett from Aberdeen Boat Club.
- Sophie Warburton
- Hazel Geddes
- Dave Rothwell
- Robert Gordon
- Ken Sinclair
- Neil Wallace
- Hazel Smith
- Katie Van Exan
The crew is not prepared to the level they would perhaps wish, as the busy social and professional lives of the squad members has limited the time spent on the water together.
That said, it is hoped that we all enjoy the experience, and the club collectively builds on this grounwork as we move forwards. Perhaps next year we can send both a gents and a ladies crew?
Previous participation in this event by the squad.
2014 - Dave and Hazel (Smith) took part in composite crews.
2011 - Hazel (Smith) took part in a composite crew.
2009 - unnamed ladies took part in a composite crew.
2005 - Neil and Ken took part in this event as part of an Inverness crew with 4 members of SABC becoming members of IRC for the occasion (The photograph above is of that crew!)
It will be a first row on the Thames for the Robert Gordon.
