Between 3pm on Friday 1st March and 3pm on Sunday 3rd March, members rowed for 48 hours to raise money to repair Neptune, our eight-man boat, which was in desperate need of refurbishment to get it back on the water and get more people out rowing.
The event was a big success, with 50 members aged between 13 and 65 taking part, rowing a grand total of 601,856 metres (or 374 miles!) between them. As a result, we have so far raised over £2,500 towards the cost of repairing Neptune, and will shortly be seeing it back out on the water again with both juniors and adults being able to use the boat to learn and compete.
A special well done to our rowers who went the furthest!
Ethan Page rowed the most metres overall with 45,723m, Alice Davies did the most metres of the women with 16,132, Sam Smith the furthest of the junior boys with 25,264m and Hope Farquhar rowed the furthest of our junior girls with 26,107m.
Well done and thank you to all the rowers who took part, and to all our sponsors.
