Tom C said: Mr Law's Henley winning should not go unmentioned...Iain Law, our chief coach and boatman, was a winner in the Vet B quads at Henley Veterans Regatta this year, rowing for St Ives...
"I was a last minute replacement for the usual stroke man of the quad who had suffered muscle spasms in his chest. I don't think anyone was more surprised than me & the other guys by our progress/success - we managed to win our races fairly comfortably (or at least we weren't dying/suffering horribly by the end!). Don't know if we had an "easy" year or not, but after over 25 yrs of rowing it's nice to get a Henley medal of some sort - even if I am a bit old and slow for the Diamonds these days!"
We've found a photo of their final which is in the gallery.
