Heidi Giles, Club Captain:
As our club grows the social provides a great opportunity for everybody to meet and appreciate that they are part of something bigger than their crew or group. We have recreational, novice and competitive rowers at junior and adult level and while some crossover does occur at training we are never all in the gym or on the water together.
Rowing is tough, the winter training can be cold and wet on the water and monotonous and painful in the gym, an opportunity to hit the dance floor together and literally “rock the boat” reminds us all: it’s about fun and camaraderie. The committee and particularly our secretary Siobhan put a lot of time and thought into the night and the whole club is grateful. We had a great night!
