Dittons Skiff & Punting Club WIN Riparian Challenge in Great River Race 2018

Saturday 8 September The Dittons took part in the 22 mile Great River Race. The fastest boat claimed 6th place overall in a time of 2 hours and 24 minutes. The crew successfully retained the same three trophies they won last year including the Riparian Challenge, a competition between boroughs bordering the Thames that requires that that each boat in this category must carry as a passenger, a representative of the mayor of that borough.

The current Mayor of Elmbridge is Councillor Mrs Shweta Kapadia and her representative in the boat was Councillor Mrs Mary Marshall.

The crew were Russell Groom, Simon Hall, Peter Lawson, Simon Leifer, Dave Matthews Andy Wells and John Woolman.

We would like to thank everyone who has sponsored them so far or on our behalf. Donations are still very much wanted and if you would like to sponsor the crew then please go to
