Sir Matthew Pinsent CBE to row at Porthtowan

June 8, 2011 Posted by Philippa in Latest News 6 comments

Sir Matthew Pinsent CBE will be joining rowers at the Clubhouse this Monday.  Matthew has teamed up with Redruth School as part of the ‘World Olympic Dreams’ programme.  Whilst promoting the sport of rowing, Matthew will be joining youngsters from Redruth school down at Porthtowan, where he will be taking to the waves in the Blue Bali surf boat.  We don’t think that he has been rowing in a surf boat before and we hope he will be up for the challenge.  I’m sure the 7 foot predicted swell, the heavy rowing equipment, and the potential for carnage won’t worry him at all, but will he be brave enough to wedgie up in his custom made Speedos?  We’ll have to wait ’til Monday to find out!

    Not really sure, sorry to be vague, but it could be sometime in the pm. I will let you know when and if I hear anything.

  3. Adam says:

    He can borrow my speedos. They are well used and stretched, but they maybe a bit small for him.

  4. Philippa says:

    Or he can borrow the ‘club speedos’!

  5. Philippa says:

    Custom made speedos all sorted, ready for Sir Matthew for Monday.

  6. Hullo, I just wanted to “Like” this but I guess I’ll just write here. Great post.
