After consulting our safety boat operators who have been following this storm from Spain,
It looks like this will be sitting above Dover from 1000 till 1600 at least and based on that forecast we regret to say Dover regatta will be off tomorrow
Will will confirm a new date ASAP.
Following attaining 4th position at the recent British Rowing Offshore Championships at Sandbanks, Poole, Maria and Jo have qualified to represent Great Britain at the World Coastal Rowing Championships in Canada in October. Dover Rowing Club are proud and very excited for them to attend, not only to represent Great Britain but to represent Dover as all competitors wear their club colours and Maria and Jo will be wearing their Dover blue and white quarters with GBR03 emblazoned on them.
If any of our friends would like to help in getting them to Canada the club would be very grateful as we are an amateur rowing club with minimal funds. In return we would be able to put you as a sponsor in our newsletter and on our web pages.
