This week's Golden Oldies spotlight falls on Penryn Rowing Club crew, who are featured in this fantastic photograph from 1968. They had just won the under-18 Four Oar event at Torpoint Regatta. The Flashboat Saracen was newly built and the club's first.
She was built by Rob Hilder and Mike Galloway (both of whom were Falmouth Docks shipwrights and club members) off a design by Percy Dolton. Crew from Left to Right: Alan Blackmore (cox), Chris Wells, Trevor Roberts, Kevin Paul and Colin Blackmore. Thank you to Colin for supplying the picture.
