Our two new women’s boats were named in proper Vesta fashion on Sunday 4th November. It was great to see the club full of members, old and new, enjoying the occasion. The four is named Voracious and the eight is “Dick Welch” after our long-time member, coach of Dick’s Ducks Summer Sculling School, dedicated Bar Steward and committee member, amongst other things!
“I’m very pleased to have a boat named for me and I hope that it is a fast one! That will happen with the dedicated training of our athletes, so I’m sure it will fly! I hope to see this craft cross the line first at many regattas including HWR and maybe even HRR! I’ll be watching….”
