Merton crews will be fresh from Summer Eights racing, where we are entering three men’s crews and two women’s crews, each hoping to improve on last year’s positions. M2 looks set for blades in particular, with M1 also planning to translate skills honed at our Amsterdam training camp into upward movement within Men’s Div 2! W1 will fight to stay in Women’s Div 2 and W2 and M3 are rowing on again, after both rowing on successfully last year.
Please join fellow Mertonians on the Saturday of Eights week to support Merton’s crews over a glass of Pimms on the river, and for a celebratory dinner with the crews afterwards!
