Rowing weekend Itchenor - 23rd/24th October

Rachel
Hi all,
       The club has been invited to take part in a rowing event at the Itchenor Sailing Club on the weekend of 23rd/24th October. It looks like a really good opportunity to meet up with other local clubs and it would be great to take at least one Galley and the Celtic. The invitation and description of the event are below. Please sign up and say whether you are interested in the Saturday and/or Sunday. If you would like to book the Friday supper please do that directly.

Rachel


Programme for the Rowing Weekend:
Fri 22nd Rowing Supper 7pm. Please book online: https://www.itchenorsc.co.uk/event/617835
It is possible to stay overnight in the rooms at the club for the rowing. Please contact Kay or Caroline to book your room at members rate. Phone 01243 512400

Sat 23rd Rowing Races in Quads, Galleys, Celtics, St Ayles and Gigs. A series of short races are planned in the Gallon Reach Itchenor over high tide and run off the Itchenor shore.
From 8.30 Breakfast available
9.30 Competitor briefing and registration in ISC members room. There is a charge of £10 per competitor for the weekend payable at registration.
10.30 Launch boats and move to the Race Area.
11.30 to 14.30 short races for all boat types
From 15.00 Lunch and bar available at ISC. Supper is also available for those who wish to book in.

Sun 24th Rowing Weekend BYO Picnic trip to East Head
From 8.30 Breakfast available
10.00 Crew Briefing for course
10.30 Launch boats
12.00 Picnic
14.00 Return to home clubs

Organisation:
The aim of the event is to encourage friendly competition in all the types of boat so we need volunteer crews and individuals to enter to races in as many types of boat as mixed and male and female crews. We are thinking in terms of starting 4 races every half an hour on a 7 minute course with crew change overs taking place on the adjacent beach. If you would like help with the organisation please 'reply to all' on this email and let us know what you would like to do Beachmaster, Results, Starts, Photography etc.

Entry:
If you would like to compete please 'reply to all' on this email saying which boats you would like to row and the names of the crew you would like to row with? I am sure there will be plenty of opportunity for the formation of scratch crews.

Very much look forward to seeing all your entries and offers of help. You might like to do both, I am hoping to race in all types of boat! Also if you want to come and spectate there is a view of the whole course from the Itchenor shore.

Hi all, it doesn't look as if we have a full crew for either day so I suggest that rather than taking boats it would be better to just go along and join in.

If you don't mind I will drop out of this. Thanks for offering it though as it was a good event last time. Tom
