Boat naming!

On 2nd June in glorious sunshine we held a boat-naming ceremony at the club – the first for a while!

This was to honour Katie Greves, who is not only one of our inspirational Directors of Rowing, but also Wallingford’s most successful Olympian, with a silver medal from the eight at the Rio Olympics in 2016, as well as two World Championships medals and a European Championships gold.

The boat, an ex-demo Swift coxed 4, is now named “Katie Greves” and sits below the newly renamed “Matilda” who had been missing her name since she went in for bow-replacement surgery last year.
