Massive congratulations to Team Row4Victory who successfully completed the 2018 Atlantic Challenge in the early hours of 21 January (UK time), taking fifth place overall. An awesome achievement for Fraser, Will, Glyn and Duncan. Well done!

Some of the crew do have connections with TRC. Three of them took their first rowing strokes here at Tees in early 2017 after they had made the decision to take on the challenge, joining our recreational rowers for a number of outings. Glyn joined the club as a recreational rower for a time. The fifth member of the crew (their boat) took to the water for the first time after leaving the boatyard on a trip to Yarm from the club house (and back again).

We are really proud of the team who are raising money for the Royal British Legion and Soldier On! which both support ex-service personnel, and whose simple motto of:

3,000 miles

Four Men

One Poppy

seems to have worked a treat.
