New club captain and women's squad captain

Monday, 19th September 2016


We're very pleased to welcome Christina Thorp (pictured right) into the role of FSC club captain, following her election at the Autumn general meeting last Saturday.

Christina will be working with the other club officers, squad captains and our club coach Chris Vannozzi to ensure that Furnivall goes from strength to strength in the 2016/17 season.

Christina will be building on all the great work of her predecessor Michael de Paoli. We thank Mike for all his efforts over the past two seasons of his captaincy.

We're also equally delighted that Rebecca Hammond will be taking over as women's squad captain. Rebecca and  coach Chris kicked off the 2016/17 season for the women last Saturday and there's a great buzz in the squad. If you'd like to row with them this season there's certainly still time to get involved! They are a very diverse and welcoming group and there's a space for you whatever your ambitions - whether you're hoping to race (and win!) this season or just get out on the water recreationally.

Please contact Rebecca (womenscaptain-AT-furnivall.org) or Chris (coach-AT-furnivall.org) if you'd like to get involved.
