THE FIRST 200 YEARS 1818 – 2018

This wonderfully illustrated and informative book is now available to Members and Non-Members alike.  It has taken many hundreds of hours of painstaking research and work and is a wonderful tribute to the club past and present

To quote the Editor, Andy Trotman,”You will meet many inspirational men and women who have contributed to the club and to British rowing over 200 years.  Many are superb athletes – from near-mythical figures of the early days through to the more familiar names of heroes and heroines of recent Olympiads and World Champions”
