Weekly News – 22/05/2017

The Club aims to have Three sessions a week which are ‘club rows’ and from time to time special events such as away days, with everyone welcome. We also aim to offer more dedicated rowing to groups of members who form a crew and are available at mutually convenient times to row longer, further, or quicker!  Check the calendar for up to date outing.
Beginners are always welcome – we offer taster sessions regularly to those who might be interested in Coastal rowing.

RABC’s Push The Boat Out Event: 13th/14th May

On behalf of Alnmouth Community Rowing, and our crew who took part I’d like to thank you all for contributing to such a rewarding event.  It’s always a delight to introduce new people to being on the water, and we had a complete mix of folk and experience and capability.  On each occasion though, we were able to deliver back to shore crew that were at least keeping time with stroke, and who without exception declared that they had enjoyed themselves. We think the count had passed 20 over the weekend, including the youngsters in the passenger seat or who rowed.

So a big thank you to everyone there!

 

Row the Lakes 2017

Once more, the Pride Of Aln and its crew managed to conquer the Lakes, despite a very wet last day.

However, team comradeship was strong. Well done to all who took part to make this event a success!

Blyth Regatta – skiff races  June 4th

Blyth is a great spot for us, and June 3rd and 4th sees their weekend regatta.

The Blyth Regatta will be running over the entire weekend, with heritage boats and events all day both days.  Crews (that’s us!) are also invited to a welcome party at the apprentice workshop – buffet, bar, and a band.You can come along as Crew or as spectator.

Skiff Racing is set for 11am on Sunday 4th June as part of Blyth Maritime Regatta and will take place in front of the crowds at Blyth Quayside. We will be following SCRA rules and the crew category is mixed, heats may be required to decide the line up for a final race depending upon how many clubs are in attendance.

After the racing is over we can have a row out in the bay, maybe to Newbiggin past the wind turbines, or if conditions are against us perhaps an explore up the River Blyth, with an added surprise! (Don’t ask, it is a surprise).

Please let us know ASAP if you intend to come and take part, either for racing or indeed for the more social row so we can make plans, hope to see you all there.

It is Important to let us know if you want to come so to organised crew’s and lift
