It is with great pleasure that I write that HTB’s own Tim Koch, whom the loyal readers of this blog by now recognise as a knowledgeable and witty fellow of the rich history of our beloved sport, and who always puts an extra twist on a good story, was appointed Director of the Friends of Rowing History yesterday. This group of rowing historians works closely together with the organisers of events like the Rowing History Forum, held in Henley-on-Thames, England, and Mystic, Connecticut, USA. The group’s major mission is to create awareness and provide knowledge of the sport of rowing among rowers and non-rowers. Since Hart Perry’s passing in February earlier this year, the other Directors of the ‘Friends’ are: Bill Miller, Tom Weil, Chris Dodd, Peter Mallory, and Göran R Buckhorn.
