In Winter the rowing world moves from side by side Regattas to long distance time trials called Head Races. Ardingly Rowing Club is already enjoying success in Head Races. Last weekend we had two wins at Weybridge, for Richard Byrne-Smith and Harry Beedell and for Linda Goldsmith and Sarah Saunders. This weekend we sent five crews to the Veteran Fours Head of the River Race - usually held over the Boat Race course in reverse but shortened this year due to bad conditions below Hammersmith Bridge. There were 189 crews racing, all aged at least 27 – many much older, but with a great range of rowing experience from World Champions to beginners. Our Masters F coxless four of Colin Barratt, Slavo Radosevic, Stephen Banks and Ian Andrews won their event beating five other crews – a superb result for them and for the Club. We were also very pleased that the Masters C quad came in 9th overall beating their target of a top 10 finish. We had three women’s quads in the race - a real achievement by a small Club - of those 2 finished in the top 100 boats with the younger crew finishing 92nd and their (slightly) older clubmates coming in 93rd.

Just as exciting for our Club is our Adults Learn to Row course taking place throughout November run entirely by volunteers from within the current Club membership. We have a waiting list for people wanting to join the Club and it is rewarding to see new people falling in love with the sport (and not falling in to the reservoir).

We are very proud to announce that Ardingly Rowing Club Treasurer, Robert Simpson, has been shortlisted by British Rowing for a Volunteer of the Year award. Bob’s work at the Club is very much appreciated by us all, but it is great to see it being acknowledged at a National level. We will know the results later this month.
