I have received no notification that anything has changed regarding Saturday plans.  So all is going as planned. Please can Keith,  Phil and matt who are going to Itchenor,  meet us near the harbour office at the end of the  main street in the village.  We should arrive with boat about 9.30. We will need your help to get boat off trailer.


 Jane and Mark have loaded Sweare Deep onto trailer and rigged up ready to tow. The cover is on to minimise any rain ingress overnight.

We can row as LCRC crews or mix and match with other rowers. The aim of the day is to have fun

The following is what I have received from Itchenor:-  

We will be running races from our new club jetty. We will have a 10-30am briefing then 4 or 5 short races  (25 min each )  starting around noon. We will be competing as teams in a variety of boats (Coastal Quads, Solent Galleys, Celtic Longboats and Gigs) and hope to have between 12 and 15 boats taking part, including ISC’s three boats and others from across the harbour and farther afield.

Coffee and Bacon baps will be available from the Buttery at 9.30am and as the day progresses the bar will open and soup and light lunches will be available followed by tea. We are running the racing from the jetty to allow those not racing to meet other competitors and enjoy the club facilities
