Ross Regatta

Regatta fever hits Ross

Over 400 crews from all over the UK will take to the River Wye August bank holiday weekend at Ross Regatta.

Ross Rowing Club hosts its annual Regatta Sunday 29th and Monday 30th of August 2004. Last year over 450 crews entered the 2 day event, with almost 200 rowers competing in the Vet and Junior Regatta on the Sunday , and over 250 crews of all ages on Monday , said Amelia Kinsella, Regatta Secretary. It is a major event in the rowing calendar marking the end of the racing season for most clubs. Crews from all over the UK, come to compete, from as far as Northern Ireland and Scotland.

All local residents are invited to the club to sample some top class club rowing. BBQ, Tea Tent, Bar, sports clothing stalls are available over the weekend.

Ross Rowing Club will hold its Pub and Club regatta Sunday 6th June 2004.. Full details will be posted in your local newspapers and posters will appear around the town.

Categories are offered for Male crews, Female crews and Mixed crews, who are assigned a rowing club member as a coach. Crew members are expected to be good swimmers- but dont panic you are safe in a rowing boat!! Crews are given 6 water sessions to train and practice under the guidance of their coach, after which the regatta takes place over one days racing. Trophies and medals are rewarded to various category winners and we also offer a repercharge final so everybody gets at least 2 races. Approximately 28 crews entered in 2003 a record breaking entry, the club is keen to repeat this number in 2004. Last years winners included The Eagle Pub, JDs Bar, The Alma Inn,

For more details look out for the advert in your local press and the posters or call the rowing club.
