Making rowing easier

The committee have been aware for a while that members have found it slightly tiresome to have to carry boats from the racks to the river. Accordingly arrangements have been made to move the river. Boats can now be launched directly from the racks. We hope all members will appreciate this action taken on your behalf by the rain gods.

 

Join in!

A national “Join-In” event has been arranged for the weekend after the Olympics to capitalise on Team GB’s success, and to encourage people to give new sports a try through local clubs – https://www.joininuk.org/ .

GGBC is participating and, with the unprecedented success of our rowers at Eton Dorney, we hope we can encourage people to come along and give rowing a try.

We will be running rowing sessions between 9am and midday on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th August. Anyone is welcome to come along and try rowing.

If you or any  friends, relatives, or colleagues are interested in rowing, this would be a great opportunity to give it a try without cost or obligation.
