Wondering what to do with your old tankards?

Ellis, they bought the business when the owner retired) will buy our old prize tankards at £6 per kilo to melt down to make into new ones. Having weighed an assortment of ‘ordinary’ pint tankards won in recent times, you will get […]

Sunday and Thursday sessions for juniors have continued to be well supported with much appreciation to Emily and Simon Viotta and Michelle Oke for helping to coach, organising the kids on and off the water and helping with all the boat handling. We’ve suffered from having no opposition to race against in the J16 & […]

How to order WSPC club kit

Just a reminder that the Club does not hold any stock of kit; it is all held and supplied by Rock The Boat; you need to order and pay for it online. On the skiffing & punting side you should at least have a racing zephyr for when you race, or the umpire is likely […]

Walton Reach regatta results 2013

Another Town regatta that was not overly busy… only 36 races to fill the whole day on Saturday 17th August, so there was lunch and tea to spin it out. We did have entries, but unfortunately some scratched on the day. Paddy O’Neill and Will Oke coxed by Mike O’Neill won the J14 Doubles and new […]

Royal Albert Dock Dragon boating results 2013

Royal Albert Dock on 11th August presented us with the dilemma of not having enough for 2 boats and having too many for 1 boat, so volunteers were sought to step down for the day as it is impractical and unfair to rotate too many people. The intention was to go with 24, but with illness, […]

River Thames Relay – are you interested?

We have put ourselves down to participate in the Thames Festival 2013 River Relay: http://thamesfestival.org/ The idea is to take a bottle of water from the source to Tower Bridge with all sorts of organisations doing a short bit each; not surprisingly, we are doing Old Windsor lock to Bell Weir Lock, but in conjunction with […]

World Dragon Boat Championships 2013

The World Championships took place in Szeged in Hungary, which is a few hours outside Budapest on a purpose built course for rowing/canoeing. You never quite know how it is going to go after all the training as it is still really a purely amateur sport so you don’t know the quality of the crews […]
