The Annual Dinner for Loughborough Boat Club was held at the clubhouse in Zouch to honour all of those who participate in the club, whether through racing, social organisation, coaching, boat and clubhouse repairs or simply just to get together with fellow rowers and friends.
Taking on the challenge of visiting a different racing location than usual, Loughborough Boat Club took on the East Anglian rowing clubs at the Bedford Spring Fours and Small Boats Head on the 2000 metre course on the River Great Ouse. Despite it being one of the windiest days of the year, all the crews made a fantastic effort battling it out against some very strong opposition and head winds.
This year’s entry at Boston was much smaller than usual, and typically the weather was a bright and sunny 7 degrees, much warmer than usual when we send a larger contingency.
Burton Head is one of the first Head races of the season and was held over 3500 metres on the River Trent. For once, the Trent was behaving itself and had a steady flow with a stiff tail wind for the racing.
