Well done to Frank, JP, Stephen, and Ralph. Peter Odell rowed the whole course and although his time does not affect the result, it was great having him participate. Well done Peter that is a long-distance for manpower alone.

An event like this can only be successful with the support of club members. A very big thanks to Patrick, Mike, and Gunnar for their time and the use of their vessels. This is a major sacrifice that you guys make and also those who helped you on your boats. A very big thank you to all the members of POYC.
