1920s

The 'roaring' twenties were a time of great evolution for Cygnet and civil service rowing. The Civil Service Rowing Association was formed in 1922, along with the first Civil Service Regatta. Long sought-after affiliation to the ARA in 1923 gave Cygnet access to 'open events' on the Tideway and the club participated in the first Hammersmith Regatta in 1924 and the first Head of the River in 1926. Last,
but not least, Cygnet acquired the freehold of a plot of land on Hamhaugh Island in 1920, while the
dream of a dedicated Civil Service Boathouse was close to becoming a reality by the end of the decade   (see images of Duke's Meadows circa 1927, before the boathouse was built)
