26/07/19 Operation GAS TAP (Georgia and Sophie: Thames in A Pair).

From Wednesday next week (21st July), Sophie and Georgia will be attempting to row the length of the navigable, non-tidal Thames in a pair.  That means they will be rowing from Lechlade to Teddington.  All in aid of raising funds for our new clubhouse.  They are aiming to raise £500 through this crazy venture (although really they should aim for a £1000), and hope that you will be crazy enough to sponsor them.  You can do so on their Just Giving page: http://bit.ly/30BAy7M 

 

To put some numbers around this:

15/05/17 Another National medal for Falcon Juniors

On Sunday 14th May, Martin Benfeghoul competed at the National Junior Sculling Regatta at Dorney Lake in the J17 1x.

An excellent time trial saw him finish in 3rd place overall, qualifying for the 'A' final comfortably. In the final, he held the silver medal position for much of the race, but a burst of speed from the Leander Club sculler next to him gave him the silver medal on the line, with Martin taking a well deserved bronze. Martin sculled exceptionally well, and to lose only to the sculler from heavyweight clubs Maidenhead and Leander was a phenomenal achievement.
