Thanks to all who put so much effort into organising the Ladies’ Dinner last Friday, particularly club secretary Zoe Patterson. Past and current rowers, coaches and club alumni all enjoyed the evening which started in the Great Hall and finished in Belfast Rowing Club. Our guest speaker Elise Laverick provided us with an exciting insight into her two Olympic finals and I am sure that after this everyone is looking forward to racing in regatta season.
The ‘Novice of the Year’ award for 07/08 was presented by Andy Wells to Emma Wilson, for all her hard work and determination last year, including coming back from a road traffic collision to race in the fresher crew in the Boat Race just a few days later. The Novice ‘Tub Champs’ cup was presented to Sophie Kidd for her victory the previous Wednesday along with Sinead O’Sullivan (not present).
Thanks to everyone that attend to support the club, especially to Elise Laverick. I look forward to seeing you all there next year!
