Show of patriotism

THE congregation at the annual regatta service at Mary’s Church on Sunday put the England football team to shame with a stirring rendition of the national anthem.

Unlike our World Cup flops, who mumbled through just the one verse during their short stay in Brazil, the 300 worshippers (including some foreign crews) even flawlessly belted out the lesser-known second verse.

It goes to show that patriotism is still very much alive in the world of rowing.
