Poole hosts blustery but successful Regatta

Poole Regatta’s overcast conditions did not bode well for the annual regatta taking place at Rockley Park on Saturday 2 August. The delayed start coincided with a massive downpour; nonetheless, the event went ahead despite the weather. 

Race conditions consisted of a strong on-shore side wind which generated huge chop and pushed the coastal boats towards the shore. The challenge came in a number of forms: maintaining a straight line, establishing a rhythm and making sure that the blade always found the water.

Swanage celebrates brand new boathouse

Swanage Sea Rowing Club’s new boathouse was opened on Saturday 7th December, after years of talking about the need for and planning a permanent home.

The club was founded in 2001 in the time-honoured way; a few guys sitting in the pub thinking it would be a good idea to have a rowing club in the town. With some endeavour and good fortune, the Club bought its first gig, Old Harry, and another great community tradition was born.

Itchen Imperial RC triumphs at weather-hit South Coast Champs

Itchen Imperial RC claimed the coveted Bideford Bowl for the first time in 57 years on Saturday, after a severely weather-hit day at the 2013 South Coast Championships in Deal.

With the South Coast Junior Regatta successfully completed in the morning with only a slight sea running, little wind, and the forecast promising further improvement during the afternoon, no one could have expected the rough seas and pounding surf that led to South Coast Championship Regatta and Open Event to be abandoned later in the day.
