NBRC members enjoyed a festive evening of socialising and awards to celebrate rowing in 2021.

Captains Millie Lowe and Duncan McKay awarded the prize of the Tiger Cup to It’s all About the Bass crew made up of Lyndsay Henderson, Jacque Turner, John Irvine, Johnny Macnair and coxed by Sandy Wallace.  The Tiger Cup has been running throughout the autumn and winter for crews to take part in a Craigleith time trial of about 3 km. 

Other senior prize winners included Amanda Mustard (The One to Watch), Ann Hume and John Sanderson (Against the Odds), Sandy Wallace (Most Coxing) and Jacque Turner (Most Ergos).  

The junior Tiger Cup winners, The Puffins, were made up of Kristen Coley, Chloe Combe, Alex Grant and Rufus Gallagher (not in photo). Other junior prize winners included Daniel Shields, Will Evans and JJ Wallace for their participation and achievements in winter training.  

Sandy’s Big Christmas Quiz and a surprise video Christmas wish from Five in a Row in La Gomera waiting to leave on their Atlantic Challenge put us all in the festive mood.  NBRC’s sweepstake to guess the time the boys will take to cross the Atlantic went live and all money raised will go to Reverse Rett. 

Watch your emails for information on how to enter the sweepstake. 

Merry Christmas from NBRC
