Talking Tuesdays: the WCIT women’s rowing squad

Did you know that WCIT is the first Livery Company to have an all-female rowing squad?  In 2020, the Cito Panel was delighted to announce the formation of the WCIT Women’s Rowing Squad. To celebrate the newly formed team, a number of guests joined the ladies for a recent Talking Tuesday event. 

This was an extremely enjoyable and fun evening, where people were able to virtually meet the President Rita W Bologna, Captain Clare Verga and Deputy Captain Suzanne Harkins, as well as the full rowing team. Guests and members of WCIT heard about the formation of the team, the history of women’s rowing, TTRA events, practices, races and what the future holds for the ladies. They were also joined by a truly inspirational guest speaker Patricia Carswell – the pint-sized rower from ‘Girl on the River’ who shared her story, her wins and her losses.  A great evening and we wish the team every success in the future.
