Having been a competitor for the past 35 years, I have met lots of wonderful people on the regatta circuit. Many, over the years, have retired from rowing, but I am beginning to see their return to regattas and Heads as Masters or coaching their offspring.

Watching their child race, whilst reminiscing their own glory days has made me think of a great idea; what if parent and child could race together? How good would that be?

So Soar Head have come up with a special event – Open Parent & Child 2x (J15 to J18)

Entries are by email only, to: soarhead@loughboroughboatclub.co.uk, normal fees apply with payment on the day; both must have BR rowing licenses

So come on, enjoy the bonding and show them YOU are

Looking forward to seeing you all again
