MECBC Rowers in the Blue Boat 2011

Both Izzi and Tamara have been trialling with CUW this year, and have made the Blue Boat! 

You can view their profiles and follow the run up to the Henley Boat Races on the Blue Boat Blog. 

We are incredibly proud of both of them. Both noviced at Murray Edwards/New Hall, trained hard and pushed themselves, and have gone from strength to strength. We wish them luck in the upcoming encounter against the dark blues, and it is very likely that we will be organising a trip to London to see the race on the day! Events will be shown on the calendar on the front page. 

To cover the race expenses they are running a Sponsor a Seat campaign, details can be found here:
