President’s Day 2011

On Sunday 25th September, Loughborough Boat Club Members congregated down at the Boathouse to celebrate the President’s Lunch.

This was a chance for all members to celebrate the Club’s past, current and potential future success.

With Shirts and Ties and Dresses in the plenty the band of merry members were in high spirits and took the opportunity to make the most of this occasion, even marking the event with a Club photo.

Speeches at the ready, the President, Honorary Members and Men’s captain took the time to reflect on the Club’s developments over the year and a remarkable Regatta season for LBC.

Furthermore, there was also special mention to the Boston Marathon crew in recognition of their contribution to local charity LOROS, to which they have currently raised £866 towards the cause.

All in all it was a enjoyable tradition that is hopefully renewed for years to come.


Loughborough Boat Club row a Marathon in aid of LOROS

On Sunday 18th September an LBC crew emerged from the clubhouse ready to embark on one of their biggest rowing challenges they have faced this year.

With the unfortunate discovery that the Boston Marathon had been cancelled, due to un-rowable conditions, the crew were in dismay. However, the crew where not deterred by these unfortunate circumstances and took it upon themselves to organise their own event.

With spirits high and the charity funds exceeding their target of £750, for LOROS, the crew took to the water at 8:15 on Sunday 18th September. Rowing for a nonstop 5 hours the crew reached a remarkable 54.8km that was accumulated by the crew’s lengths of the River Soar.

The Crew would also like to take this opportunity to thank everybody for their help and support over the last few weeks with both the training and all of the donations received. You have all made a real difference to help support of local charity of LOROS.
