We are proud to announce that Vesta has, for the second time, won the overall prize in the annual PLA Rowing Safety Awards. As far as the committee are aware, this prize has been awarded twice to only one other club, so this is a huge achievement.
We could not have achieved this award without the dedication and hard work put in by Peter Simpson, our safety officer, over the past two plus years. A huge well done and thank you to Peter, who will, very sadly, be stepping down from his role over the next few months. I hope that he gets a few well deserved pints in the bar!
This award is also a testament to the members and coaches of Vesta who demonstrate their commitment to safety – Thank you! We would be remiss to not include a little note to remind everyone to continue practicing good safety behaviour, on and off the water. Now, with winter at our heals, is not a time to let things slip. Let’s continue striving for a good safety record, and perhaps we can win the award again next year!
