Members of the Committee

Guy Leppard - Committee Chairman

I joined Molesey in 1985 and rowed in the 1st VIII with a fantastic crew destined for Thames Cup success until we were forcibly elevated to the Ladies Plate!  It was my daughter who got me back to the Club some 5 years ago - as she went through the vibrant and successful junior program.  And so now I’m an enthusiastic (euphemism for slow) Masters sculler.  Thus, I have some experience with Junior/Squad/Masters rowing at Molesey, and as committee chairman, I'm hoping to move this wonderful Club forwards.

Ben Pugh - Bar and Website

I started rowing at MBC in 1999 with the junior section, before going to Oxford Brookes University. After University I returned to row at MBC with the seniors. 


A few of my achievements with MBC have been being part of the clubs first Henley Fawley cup and Anglo French quad in 2000. Going to the Junior World Championships in 2001 and winning the Britannia Cup at Henley in 2008. 


I have been on the club’s Committee for eight years and the Regatta Committee for five. As well as previously being Club Captain for two years.


Although I no longer row, I enjoy being part of the club and the people.

Steve Parsons- Membership

Andy Hall - Communications

Lucy McNulty - Welfare

I came to Molesey Boat Club in 2008.


I was welcomed then and now I hope that I welcome others. This year I decided to stand as a member of the committee because I want to contribute and play an active role in the club’s future.

There are many opportunities, many challenges and I am proud to be a part of such a diverse club.
