On behalf of the Officers, Committee and Regatta Committee can I thank all those who helped 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 and that several Clubs commented on how much they enjoy the Ryde event and how they feel that it is the best Regatta in the Hants & Dorset Calendar.
The Club had also had some success on the water with wins for our Ladies Novice Four and Men’s Novice Sculler. So all in all it was a very successful weekend both on and off the water.
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.
The Regatta, including late entries, had an entry of 90 crews and scullers – a little down on last year r - of which 86 actually raced. The 19 event program started around 15 minutes late - but finished on time with all races completed. The regatta itself, less Bar & Catering, is expected to just about break even. The Bar take over the weekend was just under a thousand, the BBQ made a profit of £400 and the refreshments and Breakfasts made a combined profit of £798 – with the Raffle making a profit of £400.On behalf of the Officers, Committee and Regatta Committee can I thank all those who helped at the recent Ryde Club Regatta.
