Six Olympic Rowers to row in Porthtowan Surfboat!

September 10, 2012 Posted by AdamR in Latest News 0 comments

Six of the Ladies Olympic Rowers are coming to have a go in the Porthtowan Surfboat! Six of the ladies, likely to include Helen Glover, Annabel Vernon, Heather Stanning and Sophie Hosking, are coming to have a row on Thursday 13th September in the Porthtowan surf boats. Due to the high winds and big swells predicted, we will be taking the boats over to Portreath, at about 12.30pm this Thursday. Rowers from the Porthtowan Ladies A and Men’s A crews will then row with the Olympic rowers in the surf boats.
Kim-Marie, a Porthtowan Ladies A crew member said ‘It’s very exciting having the Olympic rowers coming down to row with us. It will be a brilliant experience for us, and hopefully a bit of fun for them too! Matthew Pinsent came and rowed with the boys last year, so it’s great that the girls will have a go as well’!
Come down and take some pictures, and show your support for the club, and these brilliant Olympians. The Porthtowan Men’s crew – current European Champions – and the Ladies A crew, who narrowly missed out on gold, and took silver in the recent European championships at Perranporth, will now be rowing with gold and silver Olympic rowers, ahead of Round 4 of the Surf Boat Summer Series this saturday at Westward Ho. Both the men’s and ladies crews are currently ahead in the summer series event.
