A quick message from Robin:
There are ground works contractors working to relieve the drainage problems we experienced at the compound last winter. Therefore please be aware that there will be only restricted parking at the club car park due to equipment being stored over the weekend.
It is suggested that those who can, cycle or walk down and those travelling by car look to use the public car park between the Lido and the end of Puddingmoor.
The club is pleased to open it’s doors for prospective new junior rowers aged 15-25 with three introductory lessons this August.
If you are interested in trying rowing and sculling and live in the local area then browse to our Learn to Row at Beccles page for more details.
Beccles RC are proud to be taking part in ‘Explore the Broads’, a 30 mile scull from Lowestoft to Norwich on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th June.
The event, organised jointly by Norwich Rowing Club, Broadland Boat Club, Yare Boat Club, Lowestoft Rowing Club, and Beccles Rowing Club is the first of its kind for the Eastern Region and will see the Suffolk and Norfolk crews joined by scullers from as a far afield as Leeds and Gateshead.
The Tour will leave Lowestoft Rowing Club on Oulton Broad at 11am on the Saturday with crews hoping to reach the Reedcutters Inn at Cantley for around 1.30pm. The Tour will then leave Cantley on Sunday at 11am, arriving at Norwich Rowing Club, Whitlingham just after lunch.
Whilst all ‘seats’ on the tour are now taken, Jane, Mark S and I would be delighted to receive any shouts of encouragement from the river bank from any members and friends of the Club who happen to be in the area.

All members please be aware that we have opened a group ordering window with our rowing kit supplier Godfrey’s of Nottingham.
Any orders placed before 20th October will be made up in time for a pre-Christmas delivery.
See the Kit Ordering page for more details.
We are pleased to confirm that the club shall be able to run a learn to row course for novice rowers and scullers aged from 13 to 80 starting Sunday the 7th May.
We aim to deliver an introduction to the sport over three consecutive Sunday mornings from 7th May and finishing the 21st May. The goal is to help give newcomers to our sport the basic skills to help ensure their safety on the water, learn how to handle the equipment and introduce them to the basic techniques.
Places are limited and we ask that people register their interest with a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org in the first instance.
To help us cover our costs, we reccommend a minimum donation of £40 via the club’s Virgin Money Giving page.
We are planning a members’ morning on Easter Saturday for existing and former members to come down to the club with the intention of getting as many people and as many boats on the water as possible.
Please feel free to bring an interested non-rowing friend and we can help get them afloat and show them around.
Our hope is to have a fun social morning and to reacquaint as many former members as possible with the river to be followed by a convivial round of drinks at the Waveney House Hotel.
From 09:30 until 12:00 on the 15th April
Please mail email@example.com and let us know if you plan to join us. We’ll be pleased to see you.
Please be aware that we shall be asking everyone to make themselves available from 11:00 on Sunday 20th November to help with a tidy-up and clear-out down at the club site before the winter sets in.
The plan is to have a regular club outing (possible starting 30 mins earlier) and finishing in time to spend 90 minutes applying some elbow grease and doing odd-jobs before retiring to the Waveney House Hotel for a well-earned refreshment.
Hope to see you all there.
Gemma and Hanna are arranging a trip upstream to the Locks Inn for a bite to eat and drinks. The plan is to travel via the towpath and/or Black Dog Ferry after rowing this Sunday 25th September at about 11:30.
All club members, friends and family welcome.
Please contact Gemma by Friday evening if you would like to join them.
Would all members please be advised that the club’s AGM will be held on the evening of Friday 21st October from 19:00 to 21:00 at Beccles Station.
All members are strongly advised to join us for the important business of electing a new committee and signing off the accounts for the year. It will also be an opportunity to renew your membership, socialise and talk about plans for the year ahead.
