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.
Junior rowing will take place as usual on Sunday
Hi, We’ll only have an hour for junior rowing this Sunday from 9.30 to 10.30. Could anyone rowing get to the boat house 15 mins early so that we can get out as quickly as possible. Many Thanks, Mike
Sunday 24 July
Due to the number of Juniors being away – some at a residential training course and some competing at St Neots Regatta – there will be no Junior rowing due to the unavailability of coaches.
Adults are therefore encouraged to organise their own outing but there will be no accompanying launch.
The latest club newsletter is available here with details of a club social evening, regattas over the summer and an important safety reminder.
Well done to all our competitors and their supporters who attended this year’s Cambridge Autumn Regatta on Sunday 13th September.
Congratulations to our finalists Holly and Isobel in the WJ15 double sculls and extra special big-up to Jason Lock for winning his Masters’ Novice trophy. I hear he had Christened his winner’s cup within minutes of crossing the finish line!
Many thanks as always to our Chairman, Robin De Vere Green for trailer-towing duties and being chief whipper-in.
Good stuff folks.
