Southern 6-Stage Relay (ladies), Gravesend - 20/3/16
The Thames ladies flew the Saltire at the annual Southern Road Relays. Our A team finished 15th out of over 30 teams and we also fielded an incomplete B team. The Thames Gazebo had its first championship outing and kept us all out of the wind. There were lots of excellent runs throughout both teams. Antonia Burt just pipped Sarah Hazel for our quickest long leg of the day and Andrea Holt made a welcome return to the team with our fastest short leg. Thanks to Mathilde Pauls who stepped in to the A team at the last minute following an injury to Liz Stavreski and to Joanna Shillington who timed her arrival perfectly to close the team on the final leg.

121st Long Distance Handicap - 5/3/16
A little bit like Michael Fish, who famously announced on air that there was no possibility of a hurricane a few hours before the Great Storm of 1987 hit these shores causing record damage and killing 19 people, the Captainís prediction that the course had been drying out nicely turned out to be misleading. Muddy and wet at the start, with a bit more sludge in the middle and complete slurry at the end, there wasnít really a dry bit. Nevertheless 18 hardy souls set off to compete for the glory of handicap winner. Unfortunately there can be only one, and that honour went to Giles Stimson, finishing just ahead of Matt Beaney and President Mike Farmery in third.
