First Light Festival Canceled

Good Evening Everyone,

I understand (from Ireland) that it has been announced that the FIRST LIGHT Festival 2020 has been cancelled due to COVID-19. It is hoped to it will run instead in 2021.

Thank you for your enthusiasm and, in the meantime, keep safe, keep rowing and we’ll keep in touch (metaphorically of course!)

Best Wishes


2020 Regatta

Dear all,
On the 29th January Bob and I attended the Hanse committee meeting and that evening Bob chaired our Regatta planning committee meeting, it’s looking good for 2020 with clubs coming from Essex and beyond to take part in a leg of the Nelson Cup. There is only 3.5 months before the regatta, it’s suggested we start some training sessions on the river and Ed would like to take some photographs of both skiffs on the river for our publicity.

If you are interested in being a crew member for the regatta please can you let William know along with times and dates when you would be available for some practice rowing on the river.

A Very Happy Christmas and New Year

Dear members,
May I wish you all a Very Happy and Peaceful Christmas and New Year. Sorry I have not been joining you rowing of late, I have been busy elsewhere and with work. I have been working on the clubs behalf through the council and with other rowing organisations. I will hopefully catch up with you all after Christmas.
Best wishes,
