To all our Senior rowers who worked so hard to clear the floor and bottom racks of the boat house yesterday. Not many of you were involved in rowing at the time of the last major floods so here are some pictures to show you how bad it can get. These floods were in February 2014 and caused a huge amount of damage to boats and equipment, this meant we couldn't row for several weeks. That is why we take flooding seriously!
