Dates for the 2019 / 2020 season

Fours Head, Saturday 23 November

The first of the "big" Tideway heads of the season will see a bumper crop of FSC boats charging down the river. Join us on the balcony for some cheering and at the bar for some refreshments. We will also have lots of visiting crews so will need assistance from you lovely club members to get them out and back in safely! Race starts at 12:45pm. 

Cheese & Wine party: Christmas jumpers not compulsory but highly recommended

Christmas Cheese & Wine Party, Saturday 14 December

Our much-loved Christmas party featuring fun racing in eights followed by the eating of copious amounts of cheese. All members welcome, present and past, plus friends and family. More details to follow!

Annual Dinner, Saturday in February (date tbc)

The Furnivall annual dinner is our chance to put on posh garb and head east to the Royal Thames Yacht Club in Knightsbridge. We start the evening in a most sophisticated manner, with a champagne reception and polite chit chat (mainly about rowing). Over a delightful three course meal we have more entertaining chit chat (usually gets onto rowing) before the President and Captain present the annual awards for Services to Furnivall, and the Deep Sea Diver award. By this time, a critical mass of attendees have usually imbibed sufficient wine to lead to a rapid departure for the dance floor where we all roll out our best moves. If rowing training isn't for building up dance floor stamina so one can boogie into the small hours then I don't know what it is for.


Dates for the 2018 / 2019 season

Learn To Row BBQ, Sunday 30 June

A casual get-together to congratulate our newest cohort for completing their L2R course and welcome them into the Furnivall fold. Futhermore, to thank the multitude of volunteers it takes to run this course - and how best to do that if not with food and beer! Please speak to the club captain or squad captains for more specific details.

Henley Pilgrimage, Saturday 6 July

Fancy some riverside regatta cheering? Love to people watch? Like drinking prosecco out of plastic cups? Let's gather forces and claim a stake on the Henley riverside for all the above. Please see the Facebook event for more details and updates. If you're not on social media, please let your social secretary know and she can keep you abreast!

President's Pimm's Party, Saturday 13 July, 1pm 'til late

Join us for our annual summer party at the club. You'll get a lovely pint of Pimm's on arrival and there'll be a buffet of various summery foods. President Henry will give his customary speech at 1:30pm. This year we're also going to have an early evening BBQ out on Lower Mall.
