Leander Club, Henley-on-Thames - private tour and dinner - Sold out
Guided Tour | Leander Club
Monday 6 February 2017 - 18:30 until 21:30
Led by club historian and Olympic rowing commentator Robert Treharne Jones, the group will tour the splendid world- famous Clubhouse including behind the scenes. Learn how the club developed, how it achieved its pre-eminent position in rowing – its athletes having won 123 Olympic and three Paralympic medals since 1908 – and how it maintains its place today. Founded in 1818, Leander Club aims to continue to be the leading provider of rowing athletes for Team GB (12 Leander athletes won medals at Rio out of GB`s 26 rowing medals) and to remain the world’s most successful rowing club.
