Unfortunately, Birmingham Regatta had to be cancelled due to issues at the site in Birmingham. The first rowing session for the J14s this term will be in games on Monday 25 April (please note, no rowing on Saturday 23 April). Please note that all of the sessions for the half term ahead are now live on SOCS and J14s are encouraged to sign up to these as soon as possible.
A full email communication will go to all parents of J14 rowers on Thursday 21 April, outlining the plan for the half term ahead, which includes the outline plan for Shrewsbury Regatta and the National Schools’ Regatta.
All members of the rowing club are expected to own their own 10 & 13mm spanner for rigging and de-rigging boats. These are often known as rigger jiggers. Athletes can purchase these from one of the sites below:

Two years ago, September 2016 we posted the following photograph of the landing stage after a Saturday morning practice. Two years later, we’re a single use plastic free club and proud of it.
Please remember to do your bit, and keep the club single use plastic free…”Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.” –Helen Keller
