Press Report on Swanage Regatta in Fridays IW County Press

Some of you will have read the press report on the Ryde crews at Swanage Regatta on 17th May - in last Fridays IW County Press published Friday, 23rd May and noticed that it conflicts with the report published on the Ryde R. C. Blog, Twitter feed and facebook page - and on the on-line reports on the Island Echo and On the Wight web sites.  The IWCP report stated that the Clubs Coastal Junior Ladies Four finished in 4th place - when in fact they won the event. A complaint has been made to the IWCP, who were given the correct information but made an error when trying to amalgamate reports from Ryde, Shanklin and Newport Rowing Clubs. They have apologise and have promised to print a correction in the IWCP published this coming Friday - 30th June.

If you are interested in seeing how the Club has performed in recent events we have competed in then a more accurate and Ryde specific report is usually published on the On the Wight Web site - go to - https://onthewight.com/sports/ or the IW Echo Web site - go to - http://www.islandecho.co.uk/news/category/sport/rowing - which are usually published by the Wednesday of the week following the event - or you can follow the results on the Ryde R. C. Twitter feed - @RydeRowing or Facebook page or the Blog on the web site at www.ryderowingclub.co.uk 

South Coast Championships Regatta. H&D ARA, H&DARA hosted. Dorney Lake, Saturday, 2nd September, 2017. Help needed.

South Coast Championships Regatta. H&D ARA hosted. Dorney Lake, Saturday, 2nd September. Help needed. 

 Most of you will be aware that this years South Coast Rowing Championships Regatta is being hosted by our Association - the Hants & Dorset ARA - on Saturday, 2nd September, at Dorney Lake - and is being organised by a committee drawn from most of the Associations affiliated Clubs - on which I am representing Ryde.

As with the last two H&D ARA hosted South Coast Championship Regatta's at Dorney in 2007 and 2011 - as part of Ryde's contribution to the organisation - I have offered to organise the coordinate a team of volunteer shore and start/recovery pontoon marshals - and to seek volunteers from my club to support this. So I am looking for around 8 individuals who will be at Dorney who would be prepared to volunteer to peform this role - basically its monitoring, prioritising and helping crews as they go afloat of the pontoons, check that the boats have had their safety checks, keep a record of who has gone afloat and assist their recovery on to the pontoons after their race and a bit of chasing up of crews on shore to make sure they get afloat on time and that no one misses their race. This is both for the Junior Regatta in the morning – and the Championship and open events in the afternoon - and I would hope to get enough volunteers to have a rota and hopefully there will be enough of us so that you can be freed up to watch any particular races you want to see.

It would help if you have some knowledge of the sport but that's not critical. 

If there is anyone hear who can volunteer for part or all of the day in these sort of roles we would really like to hear from you as soon as possible. Its not really an option if you are  racing although maybe if you are only involved in the afternoon events you could help in the morning at the Junior Regatta.

Also the Association is hoping that Juniors (by age) not who are competing in the Junior Regatta in the morning but not in the afternoon will be prepared to help man the start pontoons - and they are looking for three Juniors from each club to do this (the start pontoons are not in use for the junior regatta in the morning as its only over 1000m). So we will be looking for three - or more - of our Juniors to volunteer for this role.

Please let me know if you are able to volunteer - or would like any more information. Contact Steve Bull on 07786 034941 or stephencbull@gmail.com

Thanks. Steve Bull. RRC.

Swanage Regatta. Saturday, 13th June, 2017.

Swanage Regatta. Saturday, 13th June 2017.

Wightlink sponsored Ryde Rowing Club competed at Swanage Regatta on Saturday (13th June) – which, with no Coastal Rowing Club in the Town, is a Hants & Dorset Amateur Rowing Association organized event with Ryde playing their part with the Association Secretary, Steve Bull, a member of Ryde, acting as Regatta Secretary and Safety Adviser for the event and the Ryde Regatta catering Team providing the lunches for the Race Officials.

As well as helping to organize the event the Club had some success on the water with their Coastal Juniors Ladies Four “A” crew of Lisa Murphy, Emily Pike, Kate Whitehurst and Courtney Edmonds with coach Micky Jenner coxing comfortably winning the heat and final to secure their 4th win of the season. The Ladies Coastal Junior “B” failed to make the final but performed well considering that a young Freya Drage, a J16, had stepped up to cover for a missing crew member to race with Julie Cole, Carole Beaumont and Catherine Murphy with coach Allan Evans coxing.

Freya also raced in the Mixed J16 Four with Tye Cameron, Josh Lee and Austin Smith with Eirann McClumpha coxing and they produced an impressive performance to finish 2nd against older opposition.

 

Tom Starkey replaced Freya in the crew to compete in the Men’s Novice Fours event and acquitted themselves well although they failed to make the final.

Unfortunatley the Clubs Coastal Junior Sculler, Dale Buckett, was forced to withdraw through ill health and a late crew change was forced on the Ladies Coastal Junior Pair with Carole Beaumont replacing Lisa Murphy to race woth Catherine Murphy at short notice because of the close proximity of the Ladies Coast Junior Fours event – which had an impact of their performance in this event – where they finished in 5th place.

Christchurch Regatta, Staurday, 3rd June, 2017.

Christchurch Regatta. Saturday, 3rd June 2017.

Four crews from the Wightlink sponsored Ryde Rowing Club competed at Christchurch Rowing Clubs Annual Regatta on Saturday (3rd June) with the two-boat racing format of this Regatta, on the narrow River Stour, presenting a different challenge from the usual open coastal events.

Following the slightly disappointing results at Itchen Regatta two weeks ago and the cancellation of Lymington Regatta last week due to the conditions there was a welcome return to form for the Clubs Ladies Coastal Junior Four “A” crew of Lisa and Catherine Murphy, Kate Whitehurst and Courtney Edmonds with coach Mick Jenner coxing who easily won their heat and a semi-final to reach the final where they came up against Island rivals Shanklin in a race they also won comfortably. The Ladies Junior Coastal “B” crew of Carole Beaumont, Julie Cole, Ayesha Russell and Kristy Newnham and coxed by Dale Buckett had a tougher time going out in their heat.

The young Men’s Novice Four of Ben Sanderson, Tye Cameron, Ben Toms and Austin Smith with Dan Sanderson coxing led their race into the turn in their heat but were unable to maintain the momentum on the return leg and were narrowly defeated. With Tom Starkey replacing Ben they raced again in the Boys J16 event but unfortunately suffered a similar fate – although by then it had become clear that there was an unfair bias on the side of the course they had been drawn on in both events – which led to the course being adjusted to make it fairer – and this may have had an impact on the results.   

Ryde Regatta - Thanks.

On behalf of the Officers, Committee and Regatta Committee can I thank all our members and friends you for all their help at the recent Ryde Club Regatta.

Without the help of many of our members and supporters with the tasks required over the regatta weekend and the generous donation of a stunning array of cakes - we would clearly struggle to run such a successful and popular event.  I am sure you will be pleased to hear that the Regatta was a great success both on and off the water and that several Clubs commented on how much they enjoy the Ryde event and how they feel that it is one of the best Regattas in the Hants & Dorset Calendar.

The Club had limited success on the water at Ryde – where our Ladies Coastal Junior Crew won – a success repeated on the Sunday at Shanklin where Dale also won the Men’s Coastal Junior Sculls event and there was some encouraging performances from other Club crews.

The Regatta has also been a financial success and some hi- lights are indicated below for your interest.

Again my thanks for your help and I hope we can rely on you again next year.

Steve Bull, Regatta Secretary.

REGATTA FACTS:

The Regatta, including late entries, had an entry of 111 crews and scullers of which 96 actually raced. The 20 event program started just 5 minutes late - but finished on time with one race lost to the receding tide.  The regatta itself, less Bar & Catering, is expected to just about break even. The Bar take over the weekend wasjust£1,158 – slightly up on last year, the BBQ made a profit of £574 and the refreshments and Breakfasts made a combined profit of just over £715, the PIMS Bar £142 and the Raffle £264.

Ryde Rowing Club. Lymington Regatta. Saturday, 27th May, 2017

Press Release. Ryde Rowing Club. Lymington Regatta. Saturday, 27th January 2017.

 There was disappointment for the Wightlink sponsored Ryde Rowing Clubs crews who were due to compete at Lymington Rowing Clubs Annual Regatta – held at Milford-on-Sea – when the when worsening conditions and the forecast for the rest of the day led to the cancellation of the event at short notice on Saturday (27th January).

All the Ryde rowers coaches and supporters were already on ferries travelling to the mainland along with the Clubs Minibus and boat trailer – which was also carrying Newport Rowing Clubs boats for them – when the event was cancelled causing a number of issues trying to get everyone and the equipment back onto the Island over a busy bank holiday weekend!

It is unclear as yet if there will be an opportunity to re-stage the event.

Press Release. Ryde Rowing Club. The I W Rowing Regatta Weekend.

Saturday, 13th May, 2017 – Ryde Regatta. Sunday 14th May, Shanklin Regatta.

Ryde Rowing Club hosted the first Hants & Dorset Amateur Rowing Association Championship Regatta of the season on Saturday (13th May). The entry received from the twelve participating clubs – including the hosts Ryde – and the two other Island Clubs – Newport and Shanklin, was significantly higher than last year with one hundred and one crews and scullers entered and an additional thirteen late entries received on the day making a total of one hundred and fourteen. This lead to a packed program of twenty events over the 1890m Ryde Regatta course – which runs from Appley Beach out towards Ryde Pier where the crews and scullers make a racing turn before racing back to Appley. There was racing in coxed fours for Men’s Seniors, Junior Seniors, Coastal Juniors, Novices and masters crews; coxless pairs racing for Men’s Seniors and Coastal Juniors and in Single sculls for Men’s Seniors, Coastal Juniors and Novices. For the Ladies there was racing for Seniors, Coastal Juniors and Masters plus Coastal Junior Pairs and Coastal Junior and Novice Single Sculls. A mixed double sculls event was also scheduled to take place but following a re-row and a couple of false starts in the difficult conditions this had to be abandoned due to the low tide.

The Club are indebted to their main Regatta Sponsor TLM Laser, who’s representatives presented the prizes at the end of the Regatta and to the other event sponsors and for the support of the IW and Ryde Town Councils - and in particular to Ryde Inshore Rescue who provided the safety cover afloat and had a busy afternoon dealing with five single scullers who overturned.

There were mixed fortunes for the Wightlink sponsored Ryde Club over the weekend where they competed at Ryde on the Saturday and at Shanklin on the Sunday. Their best performance came from the Coastal Junior Ladies Squad where on Saturday the “A” crew of Courtney Edmonds, Lisa Murphy, Emily Pike and Kate Whitehurst with Karen Crook coxing had a comfortable win – following a re-row after a clash at the buoy turn which led to the disqualification of the Clubs “B” crew of Julie Cole, Catherine Murphy, Ayesha Russell and Kirsty Newnham with Becca Nigh coxing. On the Sunday at Shanklin, with Catherine Murphy switched to the “A” crew in place of Kate Whitehurst they repeated their success with their “B” crew of Julie Cole, Becca Nigh, Kristy Newnham and Carol Beaumont - making her racing debut for the Club - and cox Micky Jenner – finishing close behind in 3rd place.

The Men’s Coastal Junior Four of Ben Toms, Jacob Redstone, Dom Douglas and Joe Groves – with Dan Sanderson coxing, in his first coastal Regatta, will be a little disappointed with their 5th place at Ryde – but showed improvement on the Sunday at Shanklin, where James Smith replaced Joe Groves – and the crew finished in 4th place.

There was an excellent performance from the young Men’s Novice Four of Tom Starkey, Austin Smith, Ben Sanderson, Tye Cameron, and cox Daniel Sanderson at Ryde – where they finished 3rd in their heat in a strong field, to qualify for the final where they finished in 5th place – but Sunday’s race, with Josh Lee replacing Austin Smith – who coxed in place of Dan Sanderson - proved to be more difficult and they failed to qualify for the final. However – this crew – with Freya Dradge replacing Tye Cameron and Eirann McClumpha coxing, produced a fine performance, racing above their age group - in the J16 Event and finishing in 2nd place.

In the coxless pairs racing there was a good performance from the Men’s Coastal Junior Pair of James Smith and Joel Smith at Ryde on the Saturday where they finished in 2nd place but they too found life more difficult on the Sunday, finishing in 4th place. The Ladies Coastal pair of Lisa and Catherine Murphy were disqualified on the Saturday following an incident on the turn be fared better on the Sunday finishing in 4th place.

In the Sculling events Dale Buckett in the Men’s Coast Junior Sculls had the misfortune to capsize at Ryde – but made amends at Shanklin in the best way possible by winning the event to secure Senior status for next season. Men’s Novice Sculler Joel Smith finished 3rd at Ryde but unfortunately, after comfortably qualifying for the final at Shanklin, he was forced to withdraw after suffering an injury.

Ryde Rowing Club. Southampton Coastal Fours Head of the River Race, Saturday, 1st April, 2017.

Ryde Rowing Club. Southampton Coastal Fours Head of the River Race, Saturday, 1st April, 2017. 

Wightlink sponsored Ryde Rowing Club competed in the Southampton Coastal Fours Head of the River Race, on the River Itchen, on Saturday (1st April, 2017) – a timed processional event over four miles raced in two divisions.

Ryde’s Coastal Junior Ladies Four of sisters Lisa and Catherine Murphy, Courtney Edmonds and Kate Whitehurst with coach Micky Jenner coxing produced an outstanding performance comfortably winning their section and recording the 2nd fastest Ladies Fours time of the day – just three seconds behind the winning Ladies Senior Four.

There was also a much improved performance from the men’s Coastal Junior Four of Dom Douglas, Joel Smith, Ben Toms and Joe Groves – with Micky Jenner coxing again – who had been disappointed in the result from their last head race. Racing in the first division they finished in 4th place in their section beating three crews from the next status up.

Ryde’s young Men’s Novice Four of Tye Cameron, Tom Starkey, Austin Smith and Josh Smith with Daniel Sanderson coxing –  also racing in the first division and racing against much older and larger crews produced an encouraging performance finishing in 13thplace in their section.
