Jubilee Great River Race

On 15th September, JJ, Stuart, Rob and Adrian, representing the Norfolk Skiff Club competed in the 2012 Great River Races on the Thames from Millwall to Richmond through the heart of London. As far as we know this was Cherub, Adrian's 120 year old skiff's, first time in this annual event.
Truth to tell, our time over the course was moderate, coming in 157th in a field of 320.
As well as competing in the race, we were collecting money for the Motor Neurone Disease Association. On the day the donors out did the rowers and collected well over a thousand pounds for the charity.
