LRC 2017 Annual Dinner

The Club's Annual Dinner on Friday 27 January 2017 was a sell-out!




Our guest of honour was Jonathan Steel, the President of Remenham Club who proposed the health of London Rowing Club. Jonathan rowed at LRC in the 1960s. Our Captain Matthew Cummings replied, and proposed the health of our guests.  The Captain of Vesta Rowing Club, Harry Bond replied on their behalf.



Our thanks are due to Olivia Malcolm Berry and her team for giving us a memorable and enjoyable evening.

During the dinner an updated internationals board was displayed, and a new listing also made an appearance of the Club's winners in the Scullers' Head of the River Race, featuring the Club's four winners  - see photos below.
