Annual Jansons Cup 2019

The Jansons Cup was nothing short of a success! Eighty competitors were present each bringing particular vibrancy and team spirit to their respective teams. The gloomy weather did not thwart the enthusiasm for the rowing activities in the slightest. The notion of leaving the event with all the bragging-rights proved too enticing to let a little rain ruin the event. The Jansons Cup was held at Dorney Lake, a world-class sporting and events venue with a remarkable Olympics history. What an inspiring venue to go head to head against colleagues, friends and a variety of new faces!

The Jansons Cup consisted of heats followed by the semi-finals then lastly the A and B finals to decide the winning teams. Aided by the excellent staff at Dorney, all our rowers were able to get up to speed with their rowing skills. The heats quickly gave spectators an idea of which teams would be the ones to beat, some of these being Blaser Mills (Songs Of Blaze), Barton Wilmore (Without A Paddle), In The Ship (a mixed team of colleagues and friends) and Savills (Savills Row). However hot on their trail through the cup were Bidwells (Up Creek Sans Paddle Avec Rose), Quatro (Quatro PR), Turley (That’s How Turley Row), Broadway Malyan (ArchAngels) and the host Jansons Property. In the end, the “Crabbing” award was given Quatro who may have finished last in the competition but displayed the most heart! The B finals award went to our runners up Savills who were a consistent threat throughout the competition. However, after a rocky start to the competition Blaser Mills took the title trophy home making them the winners of the Jansons Cup 2019.

The event ended with a short awards ceremony and a feast fit for a venue full of hungry rowers. An interesting fact provided by Joseph Murphy (Jansons Sponsee Rower) during dinner, the average rowing athlete consumes 6000 calories per day. Suddenly the buffet on display did not seem like it would last very long with 4 other professional rowers in the room! The final achievement of the day was truly astounding, due to the generous donations from our guests, over ten thousand pounds was raised for the Alexander Jansons Fund. These donations will support the funding of research into the causes, prevention and cures of Myocarditis. 

We would like to thank all of the competitors and supporters for making this year’s Jansons Cup a spectacle to remember. We look forward to hosting an even more memorable event next year!

A Night With Andy Gomarsall Blog Post

A night of unity and camaraderie for a meaningful cause, leading with this description feels like an oversimplification. However when considering the energy and support shown for the Alexander Jansons Fund last night, it’s no surprise the footage from the evening all oozes the type cheerful exuberance only a night of laughter can imbue. The laughter was usually at the expense of Andy Gomarsall’s eccentric team mates.

Andy Gormarsall and Huw Williams

The night began with various beverages in the communal area allowing the long list of attendees to become well acquainted with one another, I believe the business term is “networking”. Many of the guests were friends and regular collaborators of Jansons Property, therefore not much ice needed to be broken.As the night progressed following a welcome speech from our fearless leader, Andy Jansons, the delicious dinner went further to encourage positive energies throughout the room. There’s something about a plate of food that makes an evening particularly more appetising. It also prepared guests for what was described on the itinerary as an appeal but can only be described as a call to action. Andy followed by an enthusiastic Dr. Sanjay Prasad put on a heart-warming yet informative display. Guests were given a clear understanding of the importance of the work being carried out through the Alexander Jansons Fund for research on Myocarditis. A cause so important undoubtedly struck a chord with the guests no doubt aiding their understanding of how their contribution could be turned in a solution for anyone fighting the condition. Better yet, preventing someone from the pain of fighting  Myocarditis all together.

Huw Williams and Paul Nash

The night moved on to the video highlights of our honoured guest Andy Gomarsall, which was followed by a supremely entertaining Q&A. Mr. Gomarsall seemed to have the guests at his finger tips with captivating stories about his heyday as a professional rugby player. A particular source of hilarity was a story that involved a phoenix and pheasant, one might say the rest of that story would be better told by the man himself.  The final section of the evening was the “Auction”, this added a fun factor to the charitable energy in the room. It also gave guests an opportunity to display their support for the Alexander Jansons Fund undeniably inspiring others to follow suite. In the end, A Night With Andy Gomarsall was a night to remember, we made £14, 685.00 and took positive step for the Alexander Jansons Fund.
