We have received an invitation to a regatta at Itchenor. The format is sprint races in different boat types. A few of us went last year and it was a really good event. Last year we were asked to take a Galley and provide a cox or two to cox it all day.
I'm expecting a similar request this year
We have a rowing supper on Fri 14th October that you are all welcome to join and this can be booked online with details at: https://www.itchenorsc.co.uk/event/rowing-regatta-dinner Also there is some club accommodation that can be booked should you wish to stay overnight. If you wish to book accommodation please contact Anna at ISC on 01243 512400.
We are working on the programme but for planning purposes here are outline timings:
Sat 15th HW 3.30pm
12 to 4pm 1km Sprint races by boat type Galley, Quad, Longboat, Gig, etc
Sun 16th HW 4pm
12 to 3pm 4km Timed races or Row in Company
Further details to follow.
Please post if you are interested and would be able to tow or cox .
Hi - I would like to attend the Saturday session- and tow a boat if possible (although not done it before).. I can’t make the Sunday so understand if that’s not feasible as someone else would need to tow it back. Thanks - Jane
Hi all. Can I suggest Nigel helps Jane to tow a Galley. Mark is quite right we should continue with Sunday's open row and it looks as if Saturday works for everyone so best to tow over and back on the day.
Could someone volunteer to liase with Itchenor please as I'm away ?
I signed up after Marcus and Christine, so guessing if they were extras I am too?
If that’s the case I’m happy to pull out rather than take someone else’s place that was in the line before me.
Just let me know if I’m still needed nearer the time, I’m happy to do whatever the team needs me to do.
Folks, ref comments about boats being full . My understanding is that this does not matter. There will be several races in different craft and all of us can participate in several races. So no real limit on numbers of lcrc rowers. I have received some up to date info about the event but need to clarify with organiser a couple of points. I will then post all details to you which will include some actions you need to register regarding craft preferences and willingness to Cox etc.
I will be putting up a new post to cover all this. If anyone else wants to join in, there is still room.
