JUNIORS Hamble River Raid Sat 13th May - LAST CHANCE!
This post was updated on .
This year the Junior Team are planning to enter The Hamble River Raid. Perry has kindly arranged for us to use Acorn which he will cox on the day. This event is fun, exciting, fast and a bit furious and so we do not like to take our wooden gigs along however, there MAY be an opportunity for us to hire a second plastic gig depending on the levels of interest from Juniors. Therefore the cost to take part in this event will be approx £10 per crew member.
The Hamble River Raid is a great event with handicap racing around an interesting 2 to 3 mile course and is very much open to all to take part. Last year our club entered a plastic gig for the first time and a crew of our adult rowers took the Mega Gig Trophy which you may have seen in the cabinet. If you just want to spectate you will be most welcome . There will be refreshments available at the venue including a BBQ and the hosts are very friendly.
Those of you who are interested please post as soon as possible to give us some idea of the level of interest. There will need to be a selection process as whilst this is a fun event it is also a long course and needs experienced rowers.
