Row For Freedom at the Great River Race

Yesterday Row For Freedom raced against 300 other competitors 21 miles down the River Thames in the Great River Race. It started off with some damage control when our oars could not be delivered due to a broken down van. Luckily Putney Town Rowing Club, who are kindly training team members Julia Immonen and Debbie Beadle, came to our rescue and lent us some oars. ITV news interviewed the team before the start, then we went on our way. Terrible weather and strong winds caused us some problems at the beginning where we nearly had to adopt the new name ‘Tow For Freedom’. Luckily the weather cleared and we managed to have a fun and enjoyable race. Thank you to the Great River Race for a wonderful day and also a great thank you to Simon and Gemma at Woodvale for delivering our boat and putting in a long day.

Well done ladies, despite mechanical difficulties we still managed to get to the other end and jointly won the trophy for ‘Most inspired challenge’ with Row2recovery. So good to be rowing in The Guardian and am looking forward to seeing what she can do on the sea.
