On Saturday 10th March Pete was able to attend the official naming ceremony for the St John's College VIII boat named in his honour. The occasion was the visit of the St John's crews to London for the annual Head of the River race. The naming took place at lunchtime on the banks of the Thames near the Civil Service Boat House in Chiswick and was attended by men's and women's crews, friends, family and Rev. Prof. David Wilkinson, Principal of St John's College. This was followed by a splendid club lunch at the Coach & Horses in Barnes. Thank you to everyone at St John's who planned the event and made it such a special occasion for Pete and the family. Let's hope that the 'Peter Wake' is a happy and successful boat and we wish SJCBC all the best for the forthcoming regatta season.
