Boat Blessing of Charlotte, our new IV+ Boat

On Saturday 19th February the boat club held the naming and blessing ceremony of our new coxed Four, Charlotte. Fr Oswald led the ceremony on a rather wet and blustery boathouse island, which nevertheless was well attended - including by the eponymous Charlotte herself, Wade Newmark's daughter. The rowers then jumped into the new boat for a quick session, whilst everyone else ran off to the Head of the River for a warming hot chocolate and pub lunch.
