How this year's Durham Regatta will see a very special reunion

This weekend Durham School is taking part in the 186th Durham Regatta.

A special reunion of the 1965 First VIII will take place, as we welcome back Chris Owen, John Sparrow, Peter Fletcher, John White, John Hall, Nick Hall, John Appleby and cox Simon Street. Sadly, they will be without crew member Geoff Potts, who passed away a couple of years ago.

On Saturday morning they will be recreating the picture taken after their win at Leeds Regatta in 1965 with tankards raised in memory of Geoff Potts and Tommy de Winton, their coach.

We wish the rowers competing the best of luck!
