Jorvik held its first annual dinner on Saturday 26th October in Putney, south-west London.
Forty-four UYBC alumni from across the last 20 years arrived for champagne and canapés before sitting down for a three course meal overlooking the river Thames. The evening was a great opportunity for Jorvikians to catch up with old crew mates as well as meeting and getting to know alumni from different eras. After speeches from both the UYBC and Jorvik Presidents, Patrick Somerville-Large and James Padmore respectively, attention turned to the bar, boat races and team photos before heading out to enjoy the Putney nightlife.
Thank you to all those who came and made it such an entertaining and memorable night. Special mention must go to John and Monica Underwood who made it all the way down from Cambridge and are expecting their first child imminently. Needless to say we’re looking forward to signing up our youngest member!
