The Story

In 1999, the Club put two eights and three fours on the water in the Cardinals biggest event to date. As at the previous year’s event, the day proved a huge success with every Cardinal going home having won at least one race. The top four, including two of the Club’s Great Britain oarsmen, beat Staines Boat Club to take home the Senior 1 coxless trophy. The 1st VIII lost their final by a canvas to Eton Excelsoir while the Cardinals 2nd VIII (seating some of the Club’s less active oarsmen!) beat Kingston Rowing Club in their Senior 3 event in a time of 1m36s, just 2 seconds slower than the 1st VIII and one of the day’s fastest times.

Steve Tassell writes:
I think it's worth mentioning that the fours race between Cardinals and Staines was the fastest race of the day!
