In mid-December members of Gravesend RC gathered together for a traditional Christmas dinner and a chance to celebrate the past year. We were joined by the Deputy Mayor of Gravesham who presented trophies including the fastest man and woman on both water and ergo, the rower and cox with the most mileage, the top men and women’s boats, and the junior with the best percentage gold score on the indoor rowing machines.

We also celebrated those who had won races this year, and especially those who had lost their novice point. We were delighted to be joined by a number of Vice Presidents and old members for the evening, and that so many of our junior members came along to celebrate a successful year for their squad, which has more than tripled in size, too.

Thanks to all those who helped organise the dinner, and here’s to an even more successful 2018!
