Every year possible clubs on our local stretch of the river Thames gather for the Hyne Cup, a private match in memory of John Hyne, a member of Weybridge Rowing Club and Sergeant of the RAF Volunteer Reserve who was killed in World War II.
Sunday's Hyne Cup organised by Walton Rowing Club, saw entries coming from Weybridge Rowing Club, Weybridge Ladies ARC and Walton RC. Raced over 2 divisions, we were very lucky with the weather and river conditions, although the wind picked up for the second division.
Well done to all of our juniors who joined in with the event in eights, octos, fours and quads – all racing experience is good. Several of the results were a very close run thing!
