Eight of the mens masters squad travelled to Lake Bled to compete in the 2017 World Rowing Masters Regatta. (With help much appreciated from two TSS rowers, Hilary and a Thames cox.) Results were disappointing due to a combination of strong competition and unsuitable hired boats. That apart, the regatta was a fine experience with eight lane racing in a spectacularly good location and ample opportunities for socialising. It was a suitable finale to a long and demanding season for the mens masters.
