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.
