Fully Crewed

Don’t know how we managed with just two boats. More than enough rowers to crew all three boats.

Back on the Water

DSC_4803

The William S Shipp is back on the water! After a year in retirement, she joins Sea Shadow and Sea Spirit, our other two Canadian skiffs. Seeing the three of them on the water is indeed a lovely sight. Once again a big thank you to Renbrook School, Toby Goodrich and Jane Shipp for their generous donation. The William S Shipp is a much appreciated addition to our club and it’s growing membership.
