A Bewl tribute to John Clayton: John sadly passed away recently after 60 years in rowing. John was known to many at Bewl for both his support to the Thames and Thames South East region and for his contribution to Maidstone Invicta RC in particular, where he was a founding member. John was a passionate supporter of rowing across the spectrum from Juniors to Masters and someone who injected huge energy in developing rowing for the benefit of others. His contributions and the foundations he has help build in the region will continue to give much pleasure to many a rower for years to come.

MASTER'S SQUAD

Like everyone else, the Master’s Squad has had a very unlucky start to 2020 with the weather meaning very little time on the water and the last four competitions entered have been cancelled. Most of this year’s training has been spent running up Hook Hill.
