Black and White Dinner

Dear All,

On behalf of the Black and White Society, I would like to invite you to the Annual Dinner in London on Thursday 9th February 2017.

Eligibility for membership of the Black and Whites has previously been 4 terms of rowing during one’s time at THBC. We would love to have as many members in attendance as possible. We will also be inviting current, eligible students to join us.

The evening will consist of drinks at The Marquis of Anglesea (39 Bow St, London WC2E 7BD) from 1900, followed by dinner at the Boulevard Brasserie at 2000 (40 Wellington St, London WC2E 7BD). The cost of the meal will be £50, which includes a 3-course meal, a cocktail and wine. This price also includes an amount to help subsidise the cost of the evening for current members of college.

There will be a choice of meals on the night but I ask that people with dietary requirements let me know in advance so that I can ensure that your request can be accommodated.

If you are interested in attending, please let me know at

Best wishes,

Lizzie Gaunt

Word from the Captain

Trinity Hall Boat Club has had a successful Michaelmas term with impressive results throughout the club. We had 5 novice boats organised by Joe Whiting and Cat Hooper which competed at various levels in Emma Sprints, Clare Regatta and novice Fairbairns. The Senior women were training in two IVs, with W1 coming a very impressive second place of the college boats in the IVs division of the Fairbairn cup. The 12 senior men have been training in an M1 VIII and an M2 IV, with the M1 VIII also training in 2 equal coxed IVs whenever possible. One of the M1 boats won our division in the Henley Autumn Head by 20 seconds - a promising start to the season! We then raced Fairbairns twice, in the VIII and in the IVs. The IVs came 3rd and 4th of the college crews in the morning before the same men rowed the 4.3km course again to finish 8th of the college boats showing great depth to the squad. We are taking 12 rowers from each of the men's and women's sides of the club to Seville for a training camp in January which will set us up for a very strong Lent Bumps across the club.

Thank you to everyone who has supported us this term, the progress everyone has made is testament to your efforts and I hope to see lots of you at the Alumni Regatta on 8th April next year!

Row Hall!
