The Goring Gap Boat Club is helping to organise the River Pageant in the Goring Gap, part of the Diamond Jubilee Celebrations. It will be held on the river below the tw villages, with over 35 boats parading past at 11:30 am. The parade will be led by a wonderful recreation of a royal barge – but our octupule and eight will be following close behind.
Our preparations are well advanced – and we hope to help contribute to the wonderful atmosphere of the Jubilee weekend.
Please contact Boat Club members John Wills, Neil Derbyshire or Ian Smith for further details, or if you would like to help out or take part.
In our annual trip to the Coupe Des Dames/Messieurs in Angers – hours of training really paid off for the elite GGBC/ARC combination crew…. a new record time for a UK crew! In a blistering 1hr 5min 4 sec the 8x+ crew managed to complete the course without incident….thanks to our Henley RC cox Helen.
