After the success of the recent Town Regatta, we are staging a further rowing event for you to take part in before the end of the Summer. On Sunday 29th July, we shall be holding a Mixed Points Regatta and now invite you to put your names forward so that we can gauge numbers and organise crews beforehand.
So please, either reply as soon as possible to Stephen Cason (Rowing Club) or make it known to a Committee member (at training) that you want to be included.
Crews will be as ‘evenly matched’ as possible and the race order/race times will be published, as early as we can, before the event but no later than Thursday 26th July.
Please be aware that with the number of crews expected, you will row at least 4 times during the day. Once set the crews will stay the same for the whole day, so it is important that if you indicate you can row, that you are available throughout the event.
For those of you who haven't yet paid the £25 membership to the Gravesend Regatta Fixed Seat Rowing Club, there will be a day fee of £5 to take part.
