Richmond Bridge Boat Club 3rd Birthday Party

RBBC-3rd birthday

The Richmond Bridge Boat Club is three years old!

Saturday 4th June 2016 was an epic day for our club. With perfect timing to celebrate our third birthday, we took delivery of our brand new cutter FOXY. A special team was assembled following a blind auction to row the boat from The Ahoy Centre, where it was built, to bring it back to our base in Richmond.

A small typo on the official shirts made the day all the more memorable and ensured none of us would ever forget the ‘Inaugral Row’! The cutter was officially launched by club president Bamber Gascoigne (gracefully wearing one of the shirts!).
