Great River Race Riparian Cup Victory
18 September 2005


An 8-strong crew groaned through the 22-mile course from Ham to Greenwich of the Great River Race to win the Riparian Cup. The team of Sean Martin, Richard Hendron, Henry Hendron, Peter Hutchison, Mark Pearce, Ed Kilby, Marcus Gohar, Tim Joiner and Spice Martin beat last year's time by eight minutes coming home in 2 hrs, 28 mins.

The team was 15th fastest down the course, out of 286, but after some incomprehensible handicap calculations Richmond finished 68th overall.

Congratulations to the team and thanks to Club Members who cheered support from the pontoon, throwing other boats off course.

Good conditions failed to change the reality that the C8 - love her as we do - is a tanker of a boat. Who knows what we could achieve with a bit of training and the very best paddlers in the Club. Here's to next year.
