UK Club teams complete the Big Row
Three heroic teams of oarsmen from Thomas Miller P&I in London as well as sister team at Thomas Miller Asia-Pacific all successfully completed their legs of the Big Row charity event last night.
In total some eighty teams from the international maritime community took part in a 'virtual' row of the length of Lake Malawi to raise funds for the ongoing refurbishment of the MV Chauncy Maples as a medical clinic ship.
The main event, pictured here, took place in Spitalfields Market in the City of London on the evening of the 11th September. However, the Club's Hong Kong office took advantage of the time difference to get an early start in a three way battle with law firm Holman, Fenwick and Willan and the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club who hosted that event.
