Following our award from Sport England towards new equipment for Junior rowers, the past 12 months has seen an ever growing Junior membership within the club. Lynn, Marianne and all their helpers have done an amazing job of getting more primary school children involved in rowing our new flashboat and skiff; whilst the older (teenage) members have continued to improve in the gigs. Some of the youngest have taken to rowing incredibly quickly and we hope that they’ll want to carry on for years to come.
The end of the summer season was celebrated with a fun regatta, in which many members took part, although some of our keenest and most improved (e.g. Isaac & Milo) were unfortunately ill that day. Well done to everyone who attended though, especially Fraser for winning all his races, to the Leuzzi family for turning out in force and to Mykel for agreeing to race a flashboat having never even been in one before last Friday!
Junior training will continue throughout the winter, on Saturday afternoons. Contact Lynn on firstname.lastname@example.org (children up to school Yr 8 ) or Marianne on email@example.com (Yr 9 and above) for more information, times, etc.
