Ed Drake Wins Another Cup - Ed won another cup over the weekend of August 1st,
but this time not in skiing but in rowing. It was for winning at the Henley Town and Visitors Regatta in a Novice Cox IVs.
Ed joined and started rowing at Walbrook Rowing Club, Teddington, just under a year ago. He uses the rowing as part of his fitness training for skiing when back at home. It works very well keeping him fit and is enjoyable at the same time.

Ed Drake has been selected for the 2004/2005 British Land Alpine Junior Ski Team.
