9am on Saturday or 10am on Sunday. The river is
looking good and we should have some sunny spells in the morning, so
make the most of it and come and join us. It’s still quite muddy so
remember your wellies.
A few other reminders…
Saturday 29th March: Social club session. There will be rowing
followed by refreshments and treats. We’ll also be running a Learn 2
Cox session for those of you interested in learning the basics of
coxing. It’s a lot of fun and not as daunting as you might think. We
won’t expect you to cox and eight but will show you the basics and go
through some of the commands i.e. how to get a boat in and out of the
water safely etc, so do join us. Please let me know if you’d like to
join us so that I know how many handbooks to bring down.
Spring Learn 2 Row: starts 12th April. Places are filling up fast but
we do have a few places left. If you or someone you know is
interested in learning how to row then please contact me as soon as
possible. £125 for the course (this included British Rowing
membership). No previous rowing experience required. A fun way to
learn how to row.
Sunday 6th April: Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race. We’ll be gathering
at the Goring Social Club to watch it. The main race starts at 6pm,
but do come along and join us for a pre-race drink and to watch the
Isis & Goldie crews race. 1 High Street, Goring, RG8 9BA. Who will
you be cheering for – light blues or the dark blues?
Membership renewals: You may have received an email from Sue Hughes
to renew your membership. Our membership fees are great value for
money and I’d encourage you to renew as we have some exciting
activities planned for this year as well as the regatta and the
development of our own boathouse.
What next…we have a number of activities planned for this year such
as a Round the Island heads race, social events with other clubs & the
Dolphin Adventure centre, BBQs, rowing up and down stream through the
locks and much, much more.
