Lymington Regatta, 5th August, 2017.

There was disappointment for Wightlink sponsored Ryde Rowing Club crews on Saturday (5th August) as Lymington Rowing Clubs Regatta, staged at Milford-on-Sea was cancelled for the 2nd time this season – although at least on this occasion the decision was taken on the Friday – so crews had not travelled. The Regatta will not now be re-scheduled this season as next Saturday (12th August) sees the last Hants & Dorset ARA Championship Regatta of the season take place at Bournemouth.

This will give the Clubs Coastal Junior Sculler, Dale Buckett, a final opportunity to secure the Associations Championship in this event – where he currently shares first place with his season long rival from Christchurch. The Club will also have an opportunity to take a share in the Ladies Novice Sculls Association Championship – to add to the Ladies Coastal Junior Fours Championship that is already secure along with their selection to represent the Association at this year’s South Coast Championship on Saturday, 2nd September being at Dorney Lake, Eton, the venue for the 2012 Olympic Regatta.
