After a number of years away, in 2018 Gravesend RC worked with Erith RC to bring back the legendary Danson Dashes. After months of hard work from our regatta committee, the big day was here, with 18 crews from Gravesend entered, ranging from novice crews to our more senior squads racing against crews from across the South East.
It was a successful day all round, with wins in the women’s four, ladies quad, men’s double and women’s masters A/B single. Those who could stay until the presentation at the end of the day were awarded their pots and medals by the Mayor and Mayoress of Bexley, who kindly agreed to hand out the prizes.
Well done to our winners, and thank you to everyone who helped make the day a success!
