River Teign Rowing Club are entering a crew of super-Supervets into the Friday night race at this year’s World Championships, with rowers ranging in age from a shade under 60 to well over 70.
What they lack in terms of youth, they gain in terms of experience, determination and wild optimism! The crew are looking forward to lining up against younger supervet crews on the start line, and any other ‘vintage’ crews that are there.
Comment below if your club will have any older crews on the start-line.
