****Waterbourne and family fun day announcement *****
I am pleased to announce that we are extremely close to having junior rowing starting.
Therefore after much hard consideration we have decided to turn the 25th August into a family funday. Races will still go ahead with NGRC and Lewes competing against each other. We will also be providing mixed sprints for all abilities to take part in. Plus quick 15mins rowing in the harbour between races for those who wish for a donation when a cox is free
We will also be having junior sign up on the day for any child between 11 and 18. Their will have to have their parent present to be able to do this. We will also have a photo of all juniors who wish to do so at 12.45 at the club.
We will also have a BBQ and drinks available for all.
Race times will stay the same but with race crews also taking part in 500 mts sprints.
Mixed sprints are for all abilities and can be booked soon via the website. Names of people who have booked will be pulled out of a hat on the day and allocated a seat.
So that’s learners, Novice and competent crew who can book on. Priority for mixed races will be given to people who are not competing in the 3500 mts And 500 Mts sprints.
There will be games, arts and music as well.
We will be holding waterbourne in the spring. This will allow us time to have juniors the opportunity to train and also take part in the regatta agains each other and clubs. This also means we can invite more clubs along who have juniors.
We feel it is only right to include the juniors in our first ever regatta.
On the 25th we still need –
volunteers to help
We need raffle prizes
Set up will be at 9.30am with breakfast on offer to buy. Official tidy up at 1800 with the help of everyone. You can stay later and carry on the party should you wish.
If you would like please bring a picnic and drink along with you but food and drink will be available to buy on the day.
I hope everyone of you understand why we have decided to change the event and move waterbourne and that you fully support the club in this decision.
