Great River Race 2023


The 14th Richmond Scout Boating Centre had four boats in this year’s GRR, Jubilant, Gordon Hall, Fan Maker and Naiad. All boats completed the race successfully and all crews (seemed 🙂 to enjoy themselves, the weather was perfect with overcast sun, not too hot, and river conditions pretty good.

Jubilant with a new invigorated Crew completed the course in the fasted time ever for Jubilant in 2h 47 minutes,

Gordon Hall (Thames Watermans Cutter) for the Worshipful Company of Scientific Instrument Makers with Simon in charge,completed in 2h 11m was 7th fastest overall, and first in three classes (Thames Watermans Cutter, Riparian Borough and City Challenge)

Fan Maker (Skerry) crewed by our associated club the Bench Blisters completed the races in a great time of 3h 1m

Naiad (Skerry) was crewed by our long term friends and sponsors AREEN and completed the course in 3h 21 mins, pretty good for a first time GRR crew. The Areen Crew are raising money for CRASH – Construction Industry’s Charity Charity! Please Donate on Just Giving here
