FBCMB rowers take on the World Championship!
16 Sep 2016

A team of FBC Manby Bowdler rowers took on the Coracle World Championship Boat race this afternoon! 

Fiona Sedgley, Matt Allen, Philip Walker and Sam Roberts represented the Firm for the big race held on the picturesque River Severn, which began at Pengwern Boat House in Shrewsbury at 2pm.  

A great time was had by all, although Phil was unfortunate to end up in the water not once but twice! 

Pictured on the riverside after the race (l-r) are Fiona, Phil, Matt and Sam - enjoying an ironic applause at Phil's expense!   

A major annual charity event, the Coracle World Championship Boat race raises vital funds for MacMillan Cancer Support.

Well done to Team FBCMB!
