Final preparations for the Great Thames Row

Avast there!

Greetings to all the crew and dedicated supporters of the Stella who will be taking part in our week-long voyage down the Thames.  Many thanks to all of you who have helped to make this a reality!

We have now published the final itinerary – all details of pick-up and drop-off points, camping spots and watering holes are correct at time of going to press.  We have also included details of who is rowing when. There are still refinements to be made to this schedule, but it looks like we will be rowing at full capacity almost every day!

We start tomorrow morning (Tuesday), with a photo-shoot courtesy of John Lawrence, at Kelmscott Manor before 7am, and finish with a reception at Kelmscott House in Hammersmith on Bank Holiday Monday at around 4pm, to which you are all very cordially invited.  You can also follow our progress on Twitter using @greatthamesrow, or you can follow our live Twitter feed on the Dance Scholarship Trust website homepage.

We do have a number of lunch-dates and dinners arranged along the river throughout the week.  If you find that you are nearby at any point, do call us and we will integrate you into our programme!

We look forward to seeing you on board or at Hammersmith.

Best wishes, Hugh (SPAB Scholar 2009)
