Following the success of the first ever Jorvik Dinner last year we returned to South-West London, swapping Dulwich College’s boat house for the somewhat more grand Thames Rowing Club along the Putney Embankment. We were pleased to welcome newcomers to Jorvik from across the board, namely Nicholas Duxbury, Toby Haggith and Andrew Anderson who last represented UYBC in 1986! Likewise it was great to welcome recent graduates into the Jorvik fold and introduce them to the wider alumni community.
Welcome drinks were followed by a three-course sit-down dinner in the main hall overlooking the Thames. Following speeches from UYBC’s current President Tom Eames and Thames RC’s Vice-Captain and guest speaker, Will Downey, members retired to the bar where several took part in obligatory boat races!
Thank you to everyone who came and made it a fantastic evening. We will look to hold the next dinner at a similar time next year.
The next event will be the 5th Jorvik vs. UYBC boat race in April 2015 so watch this space for further details.
