Our Team

We are immensely proud to have Sir Matthew Pinsent CBE, an Olympic Gold Medallist and rower of great repute,
as our patron and to have a team of quite extraordinary trustees and volunteers without whose hard work
- both behind the scenes an on the water - the Rivertime Boat Trust would simply not exist.
