|Launching at Millwall|
Not only did we retain both the Veterans over-60 and Fastest Clayton skiff cups, we cut five minutes off last year's time and came 8th in the Veterans over-40 class, which means we beat 73 boats crewed by people twenty years our junior! Take that, puppies!
AND we came 13th in the Four-oared boat class, which includes no fewer than 169 boats.
Well rowed Geoff Shilling, Chris Bream, Chris Penfold and Mike Gilbert (from stern, and that's me at No2). And thanks to Passenger 1st Class Jake Gilbert for uncomplainingly putting up with the wind and rain, and unwrapping food items for his dad and me.
