Three Generations in One Boat!

Stratford upon Avon Boat Club has been encouraging sport in the Warwickshire area since 1874 and generations and families have benefitted from the facilities, equipment and coaching over the decades

Sunday saw a special birthday treat for grandfather Robin Leach who rowed at the Club at high level in his early years. Arranged by his grandson Fred Tyler, a member of the Club’s medal winning Junior Squad, grandfather Robin was taken out for a row with his grandson, daughter Penny Tyler (nee Leach) and son in law Jules Tyler

Penny and Jules Tyler (Fred’s mother and father) had also previously rowed and had taken part the Club’s Fun Regatta and support the Junior Squad at home and away regattas and heads

Said Steve Wellstead, Junior Co-ordinator, said, “We can easily see where Fred’s determination, drive and rowing skills come from! Although it was many years since grandfather Robin rowed a boat, he quickly got into the rhythm and the boat looked synchronized early into the session.”

Fred’s double partner Dan Cox helped out by coxing the family outing
