Boat Handling & Pulling 1959

By John Hills

The shot of the whaler was taken at Shoreham's Aldrington Basin during the Zone Boathandling Competition in September 1959.


Group A. Possibly the crew in the Shoreham photo. Back row: John Piddlesden and two whose names I just can't dredge up at the moment! Front row: Dave Carter, Mike Britchfield and John Owen.


Group B. This includes the crew in Group A and is probably the Boathandling and Pulling crews after a successful regatta. Additions in the back row include John Sweatman, Paul Simmons and Chris Bourne and A. N. Other on John's right.
