Marlow is twinned with Marly Le Roi, and that association is now 40 years old. There was a celebration in Marly recently, and one of the presents from Marlow to Marly was a pair of wooden oars from the club (courtesy of Laurie Tilbury). You can see a report of the event (from Along The Thames) and a certicate and picture of the presentation on the left.
Congratulations to the JM 4x which made it to the finals of the Fawley Challenge Cup. It was an all Marlow final - their opposition was Sir William Borlase's School. Photos of their performance are available in the Gallery - click on the picture. The crew is (Bow->Stroke) Harry Glenister, Josh Kent, Seb Devereux and Chalie Simon. The coach is Russ Peacock.
With the formal announcement today of the Paralympic team, Marlow is in the proud position of having representatives at the Olympics and Paralympics once again. At the Olympics we have Katherine Grainger (W2x) and Zac Purchase (L2x), and at the Paralympics we will have Naomi Riches (LTA 4+). Congratulations on their selection to them all and we will be cheering them on!
Marlow Rowers Entertain Royal Party
A Marlow Rowing Club crew took to the water on the afternoon of Monday 25 June in Henley – not to prepare for the royal regatta but to take part in a pageant laid on for the benefit of the Queen and her party who attended a garden party at Henley Business School.
