Thank you to all who contributed to making this year's regatta such a great occasion. The weather helped of course but the hard work by MKRC members and the co-operation of our visiting crews made the day go brilliantly, even finishing the last race a couple of minutes early.
Thanks also for the kind words from some of our visitors and the lovely e-mails and tweets we've received - these ARE appreciated and make it feel so worthwhile. Finally, as a reminder of the day, here is Barry Rivett's totally amazing video of the day - enjoy!
Following the success of previous year's Milton Keynes Rowing Club Regatta, we are holding a further event in 2015. This year's event will take place on Saturday 19th September. Again, it will be an invitation event, with other local clubs being invited.
The regatta consists of two lane racing over a straight 500 meter course from a stake-boat start. We will be offering a wide range of events in all categories, covering rowing and sculling, Junior, Senior and Masters events. Following their success at last year's Regatta, we will again be running events for newcomers to the sport, with our and visiting clubs' Development Squads taking part. For many of these rowers, this will be their first ever competitive race, so do come along to cheer them on.
With the event growing in popularity, we will have an earlier start time than previous years. Our first race is planned for 8:00 and racing will continue all day until the scheduled finish at 5:00
