  • End of Season Dinner

    3rd September 2018

    The End of Season Dinner is an informal event at which the new captain gets a chance to practice public speech a head of the Henley Lunch and everyone else gets a chance to practice their heckling.  It's also a chance for the active squad to let their hair down, have a few beers and talk twaddle about how they would have won at the Met if only... There was also the important business of awarding the Wally Wheldal Cup to the most improved oarsman and the J.P. Jefferies Cup to the Clubman of the year, which this year went to Hendrik and Rupert respectively. Thanks also to Rupert for organising the evening. ...

  • Richmond Amateur Regatta

    2nd July 2018

    It was a glorious sunshine-y day for Richmond Regatta  and the regatta was opened by a Novice 8+ contest between Cygnet and Kingston. Unfortunately for the boys in blue, their scratch Cygnet crew ended up on the wrong side of a 3ft verdict after 1250m of nail-biting side by side action. A...

  • Metropolitan Regatta

    2nd June 2018

    The 'Meatwagon' (Scott, Ian, Nick, Sam, Gigi) raced in Tier 3 and Tier 4 coxed-fours at Metropolitan Regatta on Saturday. Some tough racing against crews that would have registered as Senior and IM1 status under the old points system; Cygnet came fourth in their T3 heat, just missing out on a...

  • Putney Town Regatta

    23rd May 2018

    Cygnet had just one boat entered into Putney Town Regatta this season, a Tier 3 novice IV+. No silverware alas but another encouraging performance from the novice squad, this time in the combo of Henrik, Mustafa, Rupert, Ashley, and Gigi (cox). They were outgunned in their heat by a very...

  • Borne Regatta

    12th May 2018

    More success for the 'Meat-cart' as they blast through two rounds to victory at Borne Regatta. It may have been our only victory of the day but great to see so many Cygnet crews racing in the regatta from new novices to old dogs in fours, eights, singles and quads. Roll-on Putney Town. ...

    12th May 2018

    During the luncheon interval at Borne Regatta we found time to name our newest addition to the fleet: a coxless four/quad now officially called the Neil Jackson.  Neil is a long-standing member and Cygnet vice-President whose contribution over the years has been considerable,...

    5th May 2018

    Early season silverware at Chiswick Regatta as the self-styled 'Meat-Cart' continue their form from last season with a Tier 1 victory in the sun at Chiswick Regatta. Congratulations chaps (and honorary chap Hannah). Special thanks also to Gareth for his super-subbing. Alway good to still be...

  • Hammersmith Regatta

    28th April 2018

    A few snaps from Hammersmith Regatta. Just a couple of crews entered but alas no silverware in the first regatta of the season. We did however spot a former Captain in his new role as trainee umpire. We can only hope he's pompous enough to make the grade. Still with the Chairman to guide him... ...

  • Head of the River Race

    11th March 2018

    Unusually the Head of the River Race was help on a Sunday this year and two weeks before the usual slot. With WeHoRR the previous day and Schools Head the following day, it made for what many were calling a Festival of Rowing weekend on the Tideway. The Cygnet VIII was almost scratch but reported...
