REEDHAM ROW 16th & 17th JULY

Dear members – please let me know if you are interested in taking part in the Reedham Row this year.

As usual boats will depart Saturday about 2.00 p.m. to arrive at Reedham around 4.30 p.m.

The return on Sunday will leave Reedham about 10.00 a.m.

An evening meal is available at the adjoining pub on Saturday – book on arrival.

NB You do not have to row both ways as long as we can arrange for someone to take your place for the return.

Please let me know as soon as possible if you would like to take part – Bob has to book the required number of pitches at the camp site.

Please state both ways OR out only OR return only.

Transport will be available to take tents, sleeping bags etc. to and from Reedham.

Tony (Hon. Sec.)


YBC Surlingham Lunch Row

Summer finally arrived on Saturday 4th June in time to provide ideal conditions for 11 YBC members, accompanied by three from  Broadland B.C. and one from Maidenhead R.C., to paddle up to the Surlingham Ferry pub for lunch, returning later. As usual, Tony had arranged the tide to be at exactly the right height and landing on the improved quay heading was much easier than usual.  12 non rowers and supporters joined in to make a very enjoyable occasion.

Chris F., Jonathan, Christine and Rod made up one quad and Inger and Lisa (the returning vikings) joined the two Amandas from Broadland in the other. Pete, Sue, Katherine, Sarah (Maidenhead) and Lawrence (Broadland) made it in singles while everyone was shown up by the “Mark Anthony” double training hard for the National Masters regatta next weekend. Andy and Tina (clearly too exhausted after a paddle in the Lake District) joined Tony & Nick as non rowers. 8 visitors came to join in including Bryan (BBC Chairman), Lotte (Nick’s wife), Margaret & Harry (Tina’s parents), Derek & Nancy (Inger’s parents in law with sister in law Jenny and her husband John).
