Weekly News – Week starting 08/05/2017

Welcome to the weekly news from ACR

This week’s rows:  
The Club aims to have two sessions a week which are ‘club rows’ and from time to time special events such as awaydays, 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!  All rowing is subject to clearance which will entail getting the support of two experienced members who will assess the proposed crew and outing details.The club will shortly be publishing some guidelines on events – the different types and how they are co-ordinated. Beginners are always welcome – we offer induction sessions to give beginners a grounding in the basics.

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

We need 2-3 people to attend the skiff on each day – please contact Jean Francois if you can help

ACR will take part in the RABC’s event. The aim is to introduce more people to being on water, so we will be hosting taster rowing sessions.   Afternoons, in the estuary, to suit the tide.  

You can find all the details here. It will be a very social afternoon and we will need your support.

Blyth Regatta – skiff races  June 4th

Blyth is a great spot for us, and June 3rd and 4th sees their weekend regatta.  It starts (for crews) on Friday, with a  welcoming knees up at 18:30.
