My girlfriend Laura is coxing in 'WEHORR' (rather unfortunately pronounced 'we whore'), a big rowing event that she has been working towards for 18 months.

The rowing starts around 3pm (to be confirmed) and the best place to view it is from The Rutland pub:

The plan for the day is to arrive at the pub at around 2:30-3pm ish, watch the race and randomly cheer at things, then probably head into central London in the early evening for food and more pub time, probably going to the usual haunt, The Champion:

Who fancies joining me?

Yeah, looks that way, ah well, it's their loss!

Slight change in venue:

QUOTE
The pub below is right next to where we're boating. Not sure how they'd spot each other maybe we should get all our supporters to wear deeley boppers or t shirts with Go 'City of Oxford Ding' on them.

Ok on to the details.
We're now boating from HSBC Rowing Club Rowing Club, Embankment London SW15 1LB because some silly people have decided to do major construction work on Ferbuinal (or what ever it's called) gardens.

Apparently the nearest station is Putney there's a link to a map on this website http://www.londononline.co.uk/profiles/79950/#

There's a whole raft of boat clubs on that stretch of river and apparently nestled between them is a rather nice pub I think it's this one http://www.boathouseputney.co.uk/

The finish for the race is just before Putney Bridge so you may need to put your pints down for 10 mins to see me finish. The CORC boats are 52 for Paul's crew and 136 for Laura's crew (for info Tier 1 are 29 & Tier 3 178)

So tier 1 will be off at a few minutes past 3 (boats are setting off at 10 second intervals) Paul will be off about 3.15 I'll be off about 3.30 and so on. It should take about 22 minutes for us to glide effortlessly over the finish - ok maybe not effortlessly. Expect tears, expect sweat, expect blisters and slightly ill looking rowers and of course a fantastic day out.
