20 Aug 2016Club Open Day

Cambois Rowing Club are holding open days on Saturday 20th August and Sunday 21st August from 9am-12pm.

This is a chance for anyone who is interested to try out rowing. You will be shown the basic stroke on a rowing machine indoors, before being taken out on the river to put what you have learnt into practice in a boat.

If you enjoy the experience, there will be the opportunity to sign up for a “Learn to Row” course, where you will be taught to row over a number of weeks.

There is no need to book for the open days, just turn up between the times shown, and club members will be around to help you.

It’s advisable to wear sports clothing when you come down – nothing too baggy, and not jeans. Bring a few layers, as you may get quite warm, but can cool down quickly.

25 May 2016Wansbeck Regatta Final Draw

Another couple of slight changes to the draw.   We had a crew pull out of Nov. 4+  so the remaining crew has been bumped up to IM3. 4+    and Race2 has been put back in to Division 1 as the semi final for this.

We had two IM2.1x scullers from the same club and they requested to move to Eli.1x  . The existing competitors in E.1x and the regatta committee were happy for this to happen so the new merged event has been redrawn and the semi finals will take place in Div 2 and the final in Div 3 to allow for potential doubling up issues.

And finally we had a scratch in W.J13.1x which made the draw lopsided (3 races for some and a bye straight to the final for one) so we've levelled this out.

The final draw therefore is now available.   We will not be making any further changes before the event - and any scratched crews will just need to inform the regatta committee / race control as per usual.
