1950s

By the early 1950s, Cygnet was starting to get back into its stride and the club had high hopes of reclaiming the 'Glory of the Thirties'. While this was not to be, Cygnet won more events in Junior and Junior-Senior-Vllls throughout this decade than ever before, effectively putting civil service rowing back on the map. Popularity of the Civil Service Regatta waned throughout the fifties, but the Civil Service Invitation Scratch Vllls went from strength to strength and the membership base expanded.
