Having been a key organiser of 'international' events (Ireland, Paris), Barney decided on one a little closer to home to round off the rowing season- the Tamar Challenge in Saltash.

SSRC enjoyed a fabulous day with their neighbours, Poole Rowing Club messing about in boats and indulging in some fun racing in Poole Harbour.
