2017/2018 has been our largest, busiest and most successful year yet. It’s crazy to think how far FRBC has come in less than four years and it’s all down to your support both on and off the water. Just to highlight some of the things you’ve helped us to achieve this year:
- 19 Schools on the water including the first time in the UK that every state school within a local authority has been out in rowing boats
- Over 1,200 young people introduced to the sport who otherwise wouldn’t have ever discovered it
- A whopping 89% of them now have a better understanding of teamwork!
- 84% of students said their water confidence improved
- 80% of students want to continue rowing at the end of the course
- Multiple Indoor British Records for our Junior Squad
- The launch of Future Blues and our partnership with the Boat Race
- More Adult Members, Learn to Row courses, 1:1’s and Corporate Sessions than we’ve ever had before
Whether you're a member, participant, or have simply made a booking you have directly contributed to unlocking the potential of young people in Hammersmith and Fulham so on behalf of everyone at FRBC, thank you and here's to an even more successful 2019!
