Introducing our Captains

Samuel Venn: Men’s Captain

After 5 years as Safety Officer, Sam became Senior Men’s captain in 2020.  In 2018, Sam stroked a Champs IV+ around the 100k Ringvaart regatta in the Netherlands. Sam became a father in 2019, and is looking forward to the day when his son can join in rowing as well! Please contact Sam if you have any questions about senior men’s rowing.

Samantha Hulston: Women’s Captain Senior Boats:  

Sam used to live in Quebec where the temperatures got to -40 in the winter, so walks outside led to your eyelashes freezing! Sam’s first BR race was the Ouse half marathon in a 4+ where they won their category.

Tim Seru: Men’s Captain Intermediate Squad

Tim will continue to support Sam with organising the men’s crews. Little known fact about Tim, (unless you are Fijian) is that his middle name (Turagalialia) means ‘mad gentleman of the moon”.

Carole Mills: Sculling Captain

Carole was already VET D when she took up sculling but she has always spent as much time as she can on or in the river, starting with childhood holidays on an island in the Thames at Henley which was where she learned to swim and to love messing around in boats.
