Rowing Our New Boat: Fides is Blessed
New Rowing Boat Fides
Fr. Tom Nash C.S.Sp blessed the new addition to our fleet this afternoon – a 45’ coxed 4 – before an excited audience of parents and boys.
Fr. Tom prayed for the three overriding T’s: Teamwork, Timing and Technique. A trinity so to speak; Three as if one, components without which there would be no successful crew. Thank you Father Tom for such a thoughtful and meaningful service.
Our coach, Laura Gannon, cut the cake which had the boat and 4 man crew in ‘Rock colours on top.
I congratulate the parents particularly Mr Alan Warren and Mr Niall O’Grady and the boys on this purchase. I also thank Mr O’Shea for his advice and stewardship.
‘FIDES’ will enter the water at the Neptune Regatta this weekend. Exciting times for our rowing club.
