End-of-Season Regatta and Boat Naming

Thank you to everyone who supported this event on Saturday - the blog has been updated with words and pictures.

Quads: You decide who coxes – there is a cox in every boat but you may wish to row instead! You decide the seat positions. The boat allocation will be done on the day by the toss of a coin. The course is railway bridge to the second landing stage outside the boat house. It’s knockout so race hard!
