Putney helps with Race Preparations


MVS Putney has taken out two crew members of a team which is aiming to row around the UK and in the process break a record.

Jess Plail and Steph Toogood from Team All Systems Row will take part in the GB Row Challenge and are aiming to become the first all-female team of six to complete the event.

The race starts and finishes at Tower Bridge and after setting off, the crew will row down the river, into the Thames Estuary and out into the North Sea.
From there, they will head south to take a clockwise direction around Great Britain, before returning up the Thames to Tower Bridge for the race finish.

The MVS took the pair downstream to see where the race will start.
