Goring and Streatley Regatta is now confirmed for Saturday the 20th July at Streatley Farm water meadow. All the fun of the fair, the excitement of rowing and a great day out for the whole family.

BBC Oxford TV recently did a piece about flooding on the Thames, and when they wanted to film the effects of flooding on local river users, they came down to Gatehampton for an interview. It ‘s just a pity that they were there because, once again we are flooded, although this time it’s much less severe than it was last year.
All are invited to join Goring Gap Boat Club for an evening with Zac Purchase Olympic oarsman and the launch of the New Boathouse Appeal on Thursday 21st March 2013 at 7.30. Open to non members.
Zac will talk about his Olympic experiences and GGBC committee members will provide a summary of the plans for a new boathouse.
Tickets in advance: £7.50 including wine and cheese. Contact Sally Lightfoot at email@example.com for tickets. Download a flyer here: GGBC boathouse appeal with Zac Purchase.
The flood waters have receded (although there are still some deep puddles). We cleared out the shed this morning and as we expected, there wasn’t any significant damage.
We celebrated by going for a row – and subject to the normal risk assessments, regular Saturday and Sunday sessions are back on. We look forward to seeing you on the river – but bring wellies or shoes you don’t mind getting muddy.
