The Boathouse Executive

Our Boathouse is shared by two independent rowing clubs, Cygnet and Barnes Bridge Ladies. Both clubs were originally conceived as and still remain, Civil Service sports clubs. Therefore the boathouse is leased by the The Civil Service Sports Council (CSSC) on behalf of both clubs. In turn, both clubs pay a capitation to the CSSC for use of the building. However, because of the specialist nature of rowing, the CSSC leave day-to-day management of the boathouse to a separate committee called the Boat House Executive Committee (the Exec.). This committee is made up of members of both Cygnet and BBLRC and acts as a bridge between the two clubs and the CSSC. As well as the Boathouse, the Exec. also manage the Shed, the Ute and all Head Race boating.

The Boathouse Exec. meets approximately six times a year including an AGM in April and the current officers are as follows:

  • Chair - Sue Cole (Cygnet & BBLRC)
  • Captain - Tom Broadhurst (Cygnet)
  • Secretary - Marjorie Israel (Cygnet)
  • Assistant Secretary - Sarah Thompson (BBLRC)
  • Treasurer - Sian Kunert (BBLRC)
  • Assistant Treasurer - Matt Byrne (Cygnet)
  • Bar Steward - Rob Niall Smith (Cygnet)

Ex officio members

  • Cygnet Captain - Cristobal Cabrera
  • BBLRC Captain - Sian Kunert
  • Boating Coordinator - Matt Byrne (Cygnet)
  • Emanuel School boathouse manager steve.austin[at]emanuel.org.uk
