Wessex Regional Rowing Council Meeting

Wessex Regional Rowing Council Meeting

Dear All

 

Further to the last Wessex & SE Coastal meeting, we had invited British Rowing to attend the next regional meeting to present and discuss the regions participation and support of the British Offshore-Rowing Championships.

 

Due to the large geographical locations of all of clubs, we proposed that we would hold it as centrally as possible on a Sunday rather than the usual Tuesday night if representatives from British Rowing could attend.

 

I can confirm that British Rowing will be attending our next meeting with the primary purpose of outlining the plans for the Off-Shore Championships being held in Sandbanks in August.

 

The next meeting will be Sunday 18th March at Southsea Rowing Club and the meeting will commence at 10.30am

 

This is a great opportunity for all clubs within the Wessex & SE region to find out more about the Off-Shore Championships and how their clubs can take part or support and we hope that the venue and date will suit those who would usually be unable to attend a Tuesday night meeting.

To help gauge number, please could you advise by return email if you or a representative of your club will or will not be attending?

With thanks in advance,

Penny

 Results and analysis of H&D Safety Committee Boat Inspections, 2017 including Life Jackets.

 Additional information may be sent prior to the meeting.

 In my earlier E Mail - of 6th January I asked if delegates could confirm their intention to attend or not - remembering that any Club not attending may be penalised by the Association - and their ideal port of arrival to allow us to plan the transport and catering.

I have received positive responses from - 

Mark Viner, Chairman of the Safety Committee. Ideally Lymington or Cowes

Steve Lloyd-West. Southampton ARC. Cowes?

Adam Ratcliffe. BTC & H&D Safety Committee. Cowes?

Kasia Koniec. BTC. Cowes.

Mike Gisborne. Southsea & Safety Committee. Ryde.

Tom Schofield. Coalporters. Cowes?

Steve Fagan. Itchen. Cowes.

Andi Davies. Southampton. Ryde.

Gary Joyce. H&D Safety Committee. Cowes.

Steve Draper. Ryde. Resident on the IW.

Myself. RRSA & H&D Safety Committee. Resident on the Island.

and I have received one apology from Jessie Lyons at Dolphin.

So that's 11 attending at the moment, with one apology and no response, unless I have missed it from - Christchurch, Bournemouth or Poole + Shanklin and Newport - which is of some concern as these Clubs are due to be visited - and I hoped would be able to help with some of the logistics - which I am now working on and will contact you all again shortly.

Regards.

Steve Bull.

Regional Rowing Safety Adviser.
