It is with disappointment that the KSRCPA have had to announce the postponement of the Rowing Club Ball due to be held in November.
The (provisional) new date for the ball is now Saturday 17 April, 2021 at the Racecourse. All tickets that have been purchased will be carried over to this event so there will be no need to re-book. Anyone wishing to return their ticket and claim a refund will be able to, details of how to do this will go out on classlist. Athletes, parents and supporters wishing to attend the ball who have not already purchased tickets will be able to purchase tickets from January onwards.
The rowing club will be closed from Saturday 21 March. We understand as a school what a major part rowing plays in all of our athletes daily lives; however, in the current climate, the welfare and well-being of our pupils is our top priority.
We are working closely with the school and are following all
the latest guidance from Public Health England (PHE) to prepare for the
potential challenges the coronavirus outbreak could have for us over the coming
months. This is one of the busiest times of the rowing year and it is likely
that there will be a level of disruption to the “normal” rowing calendar.
Over the next week, the club has three major events – the
North of England Head, Schools’ Head and the Sculling Head. We will be
evaluating, in line with the best advice and guidance available at the time,
our participation in these events and will ensure that clear and timely
communication is in place to highlight any changes and amendments. With this in
mind, please could I ask all rowers and parents to refer in the first instance
to the rowing website for updates.
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:
As of 2 March, the club moves onto the summer planner. This now means that the J15/J16 girls on Monday, and the J14s (Tues-Thurs) are now at the boathouse after school. All boathouse sessions now finish at 6:30pm as a majority will now be on the water.
