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.

  1. Sophie Warburton
  2. Hazel Geddes
  3. Dave Rothwell
  4. Robert Gordon
  5. Ken Sinclair
  6. Neil Wallace
  7. Hazel Smith
  8. Katie Van Exan
Cox is Mathew Burnett from Aberdeen Boat Club.

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?
