At the AGM on 22 July 2018, Jon (“Mac”) MacKinney was elected Captain of the Club. Mac has been a member of the Club for a number of years.
Mac said “Firstly, I would like to thank Danny for the outstanding work he has put in to the Club over the past three years. He is a tough act to follow!
As Captain, I am looking to build on Danny’s good work for the coming season. KRC is one of the few clubs in the country to have success across all squads, from GB representation through to beginners winning their first pots at Town regattas. Particular highlights for me from the past season are the amazing win at Women’s Henley by our Junior girls, ALL of our Senior Men’s squad qualifying for Henley Royal Regatta, and a growing Masters’ Squad.
This coming season we’re going to build on that success and I am pleased to announce that Danny has agreed to accept a new position of Rowing Director.
I am proud to be Kingston Rowing Club’s Captain but even prouder just to be a member.
I look forward to seeing you all down the club and winning with scarlet blades!”
