The 2018-19 Season was fairly ordinary with only a few wins at selected regattas.Being a hot summer a decision was made not to compete at a couple of venues. A couple of guys had time out for a bit of body maintenance which had a bit of effect with crew selection. The Annual Regatta on 6th April was once again a success with perfect weather.
