Sidmouth July 12th.


A great day was had by all at Sidmouth's second Regatta with several crews including some novices who had a taste of racing at their first event. Sidmouth put on an excellent day with good weather and all SSRC members took the opportunity to enjoy the best about these events including meeting old friends, making new ones and having a row too. We also managed some surprising results with the mens B coming third in the A race. Looking forward to it next year!

Next meet - Last Friday of thr month 5pm onwards at boathouse, racing starts at 6.

Carpenters Cups are back on a monthly basis and open to all club members. Please view the events list for future dates - Everyone welcome!

You will have complete freedom to choose a challenge that suits you. Be it a large team doing just 20 minutes each or a tandem 24-hour row you are bound to find something that suits you. Full instruction on use of the rowing machines will be given. 

This event is held with thanks to Swanage Sea Rowing club for the use of their brand new boathouse and facilities located on Prince Albert Gardens near the pier.

On the weekend of the 8th/9th June SSRC we welcomed 10 experienced rowers from ACVP Rowing Club (Aviron Club Villennes Poissy) on the Seine who visited to try rowing traditional wooden Pilot Gigs. A fantastic time was had by all.- we are looking to do it again next year! Superb!
