Ryde Rowing Club Annual Regatta - Event Sponsorship. SATURDAY, 2nd JUNE, 2018.

Ryde Rowing Club Annual Regatta - Event Sponsorship.

SATURDAY, 2nd JUNE, 2018. 

Members will appreciate that in these difficult financial times funding Ryde Rowing Clubs Annual Regatta - which costs around £4,000 to stage - of which only around £1,000 comes from entry fees and program sales - is quite a challenge. Over the years we have been very fortunate to receive the support of members who have local businesses or connections with local businesses - who have agreed to sponsor an event at the regatta in exchange for an advert in the program, publicity over the PA system during the Regatta and visual displays in the Clubhouse.

I would like to take this opportunity, on behalf of the Club, to thank those who have supported us in the past and who continue to do so - some have already committed to support the 2018 event - but also I would like to ask if there are any other members who may be in a position to support the Regatta - or know someone or a business that might be be prepared to do so. Shown below are details of the opportunities for event sponsorship at the 2018 Club Regatta - which takes place on Saturday, 2nd June - d if you/they need a more formal approach - let me have a name and address and I will send this to them. There are two Regatta sponsorship opportunities shown below - "Event Sponsorship" and "Small Ads".

Ryde Rowing Club Annual Regatta - Sponsorship.

SATURDAY 2nd JUNE, 2018.

Event Sponsorship.

Since 1972 the two main Isle of Wight Rowing Clubs, Ryde and Shanklin have hosted Hants. & Dorset Amateur Rowing Association Championship Regattas. These two events, staged over a weekend between mid May and mid June each year, bring around fifteen visiting mainland Rowing Clubs from all along the Southcoast and occasionally inland - some 800 competitors and supporters - to the Island. As this is a weekend event most of our visitors stay over for the full weekend bringing a useful boost to early season trade for many Island businesses and the events provide a free sporting spectacle for Islanders and Visitors alike and generates useful publicity for the Island.

The success of the two events has on three occasions led to the Island being awarded the prestigious Southcoast Rowing Championships Regatta which the Ryde and Shanklin Clubs have organised jointly on behalf of the Hants. & Dorset Amateur Rowing Association. The Island Regatta weekend is one of  the most popular in the South of England - regularly attracting over one hundred entries to each event - and with the growth in the sport this popularity is expected to continue to grow.

Coastal rowing remains one of the few truly amateur sports still in operation with no payments or expenses paid to competitors, officials or coaches and no cash prizes awarded.

As I am sure you will appreciate the cost of running the Regatta increases each year putting an ever increasing financial strain on the organisers. In spite of this the Ryde Club is proud of its record of running one of the most successful and best organised Regattas in the Hants. & Dorset area.

The income generated by the regatta is limited as the entry fees are fixed by the governing body and it is not possible to charge a fee to spectators as you can with many sports. Since 1980 we have been able to offset some of the costs thanks to the generosity of our sponsors.

Once again it is our intention to sell advertising space in our Regatta programme to local businesses who are known for their support of local Clubs and who hopefully gain from the competitors and spectators who will be visiting the Island. In addition to the advertising space we will link advertisers to an event or cost of the Regatta and give them additional publicity over the P.A. system during the Regatta. We will also be prepared to display any publicity material made available at the Clubhouse and to circulate additional advertising material when the programmes are distributed.

The programme cover and any inside pages on which the adverts are displayed are, in the majority of cases, professionally printed.

It is our hope that sponsors will be willing to contribute around £50 for a quarter page advert and £100 for a half page. While we appreciate that this is probably not commercially viable we hope that the knowledge that you would be supporting a local Club and event will persuade you to take a place in our Programme. 

Ryde R. C. Regatta - Small Ads.            

Ryde Rowing Clubs Annual Regatta - part of the Hants & Dorset ARA Championship Regatta Programme - in addition to the main event sponsorship, is giving an opportunity to members and friends of the Cub , who have their own businesses to take out a “Small Ad” in the Regatta programme.

Around 800 attend the Regatta to compete and watch - including many local residents and many of the Club Members.

These adverts will be in a simple format (no pictures or complex fonts and limited graphics - see examples from last year’s programme below) - they will have a maximum of around twenty words and will be about 2” x 1” in size and located in the inside pages of the programme. In addition an advertiser will receive some publicity over the Regatta PA system during the Regatta - and have a mention on the Regatta’s interactive display in the Clubhouse and enlarged versions of their advert on display in the Clubhouse In exchange we are hoping that advertisers would be prepared to contribute £25 to the Regatta Funds.

With our thanks for your consideration.

Regards - and best wishes for Christmas and the New Year.

Ryde Rowing Club Presentation Evening. 8.00am Friday, 22nd December at the Clubhouse.

Further to our earlier E Mail and following the cancellation of Annual Presentation Dinner due to poor numbers - we would now like to invite all members to the promised Clubhouse based Presentation Evening - to celebrate the 2017 season - which will be held on Friday, 22nd December starting at 8.00pm and going on until around midnight. 

This will be a "free" event to members and a buffet  will be provided - although obviously it will be a paid bar. 

There will be a Presentation on the 2017 season & photo montage, the presentation of the Club Awards and a Raffle for the club charity & Boat Fund and the opportunity to take crew and club photos with the Trophies.

While the awards presentation is primarily aimed at the Rowers and we hope to see as many of those who competed for the Club this season as possible come along - with coaches, parents and supporters - and all members of the club are very welcome - and we hope as many of you as possible do come along to help us celebrate a pretty successful season. 

Although this is a "free" event it would be useful if you could let us know if you are coming along. E Mail : Ryderowingclub@gmail.com - or let any Officer or Committee member know. Please try and get along.

2017 SCC Press Report.

While our success at the 2017 South Coast Championships was well covered by the on-line IW News outlets - on the Wight and the Island Echo - some of you will have noted there was no report on any of the IW Rowing Clubs success at the Championships in the IW County Press on Friday (8th September) - which was disappointing.

Having asked the question the IWCP advised us that this was due to lack of space but have promised a full report in next Fridays paper - published on 15th September.

Well done to everyone who competed at the South Coast Championships at Dorney on Saturday - and in particular to are Junior Ladies on winning their South Coast Championships for the Club and the Association.

South Coast Rowing Championships. Dorney Lake, Eton. Saturday, 2nd September, 2017.

South Coast Rowing Championships, Saturday 2nd September, 2017.

RYDE ROWING CLUB. SOUTH COAST COASTAL LADIES JUNIOR FOURS CHAMPIONS.

Wightlink sponsored Ryde Rowing Clubs Ladies Coastal Junior Four crew of Courtney Edmonds, Kate Whitehurst, Lisa Murphy, Catherine Murphy and cox Emily Pike – this seasons Hants & Dorset ARA Champions – maintained their dominance in the event while representing their Association in the Championship event – the only IW crew to earn Association representative honours – at this year’s South Coast Championship Regatta – held at Dorney Lake, Eton, the 2012 Olympic Regatta venue, on Saturday (2nd September). They produced a dominating performance, stamping their authority on the race from the start and eventually winning by more than five lengths in a time of eight minutes 35.12 seconds which was also the fastest time recorded for any Coastal Ladies Four at the Regatta – and a faster time than the Ladies Senior Fours Championship event. This was the thirty-seventh time the Club has had a crew represent the Association and is their 17th South Coast Championship win but their first in the Ladies Coastal Junior Fours event.

The Club also produced some strong performance in the supporting events held over the same 2000m course as the Championship events and in the Junior Regatta, over 1000m course, held in the morning.  

The Clubs Junior Senior Four of Joel Smith, Max Reeve, James Smith and Dale Buckett with Erin McClumpha coxing performed well above expectations to finish 3rd in their supporting event although the Clubs Coastal Junior Four of Dom Douglas, Jacob Redstone, Ben Toms and Joe Groves with Dan Sanderson coxing will have been disappointed with their race in the their heat where they just failed to qualify for the final.

The young Men’s Novice Four of Josh Lee, Tye Cameron, Ben Sanderson and Austin Smith with Dan Sanderson coxing once again performed better finishing 3rd in their heat to qualify for the final where they finished in 5th place. Earlier in the day – in the Junior Regatta this crew – with Tom Starkey racing in place of Josh Lee had impressed with a 3rd place finish in the Boys J16 Coxed Quad.

Tom Starkey and Josh Lee also raced in a Boys J16 double where they finished in 6th place in their heat, failing to make the final and Freya Drage and Grace Bolland raced in the Girls J14 Double where they finished 4th in the final.

Austin Smith also competed in the Boys J16 single sculls, finishing in 4th place in his heat – failing to make the final – Ben Sanderson and Tye Cameron, racing in the Boys Coastal J16 Single Sculls – finished first and second in the final – with Ben giving the Club a second win on the day.

Bournemouth Regatta. Saturday, 12th August, 2017.

Bournemouth Regatta. Saturday, 12th August, 2017.

Wightlink sponsored Ryde Rowing Club produced a reasonable set of results in the final Hants & Dorset Amateur Rowing Association Regatta of the season at Bournemouth on Saturday (12th August).

There was a 10th win for the Ladies Coastal Junior Four of Lisa Murphy, Emily Pike, Kate Whitehurst, and Catherine Murphy with coach Micky Jenner coxing in an event they have dominated all season to take the Hants & Dorset Championship, the Clubs forty-first title and to be selected to represent the Association at the South Coast Championships – for the thirty seventh time in the Clubs history.

The young J16 Mixed Four of Tye Cameron, Freya Drage, Austin Smith and Tye Starkey with coach Graham Reeve coxing also tasted victory in their event with a comfortable win although this may have had an impact of the Men’s Novice Four, where Josh Lee replaced Freya and due to poor race scheduling they had to race again just two events later finishing in 5th place.

The Men’s Coastal Junior Four of Dom Douglas, Joel Smith, Ben Toms and Joe Groves with Micky Jenner coxing once again performed reasonably well to finish 3rd in their heat and gain a place in the final where they kept pace with the other crews in a tight race before falling back at the end to finish in 5th place.

The Men’s Coastal Junior Senior Four of Joel Smith, Max Reeve, James Smith, Dale Buckett and Cox Allan Evans in only their 2nd race of the season produced a good performance to finish in 3rd place in the Final.

Dale and Joel then went on to race in their respective single sculling events - Dale in the Men’s Coastal Junior event and Joel in the Men’s Novice event and both will be disappointed with their results. Dale’s 2nd place bought to an end his season long battle with his rival from Christchurch – whose win gave him the Hants & Dorset Championship leaving dale in the runners-up slot. Joel finished in 5th place which was disappointing after a good performance in the heat where he finished in 2nd place.

Other results at the Regatta meant that Ryde will also have a share in the Associations Ladies Novice Scull Championship – a forty second H&D Championship.
