36 club members took to the River Severn to enjoy a special Festive Row on Sunday. With the crews dressed in Yule apparel, the fleet included a men’s eight, a women’s eight, three quads and a coxed four. After a 10 kilometre non-competitive row the crews rehydrated and refuelled on an athletic mix of mulled wine, mince pies and assorted pastries and sweets back at the boathouse. Grateful thanks to the Sunday Coaches who organised this excellent event and for getting us in all the Christmas spirit.

Well done to everyone who took part in today’s mini head. Thank you also to our starters Ian and Andrew and our finishers Bruce and Marc.

Upton boat club saw a much overdue reunion for 19 rowers from squads coached by Rob Gibson over a period of 20 years. Two viiis boated with crews selected to be of matched total mass and Ian and Linda from the home club kindly took charge of the coxing seats. The crews contained Henley winners (and losers !) and representatives of Wales, England and Great Britain along with at least 20 national Gold medals and crew members from some of the best university and club crews in the country.  The two matched crews produced some highly spirited and competitive rowing before retiring to a very pleasant Sunday lunch at Ye Old Anchor Inn. Many thanks to all at the club for making us all so welcome, you may well see us all again.

PS the 1999 quad may well be racing at next years at Masters…..
