David Searle, Executive Director of The BNY Mellon Boat Race said: “We’re delighted and grateful that so many Light and Dark Blue Olympians are able to attend the dinner. This reflects the long standing connection between The Boat Race and Olympic rowing. After the fantastic success of the British Rowing team at London 2012, The 2013 BNY Mellon Boat Race is set to be one of the most eagerly anticipated sporting events of the year.”
The dinner will be held on Thursday 21st March, just 10 days before The 2013 BNY Mellon Boat Race, and will be attended by this year’s Blue Boats and the Chief Coaches. Guests will enjoy first class hospitality and entertainment, and an exclusive opportunity to engage with the Olympians and this year’s Blue Boats.
