Henley Masters Regatta 8th/9th July 2011:

Only two Scottish rowers, Ailie Ord from Strathclyde Park and Eva Rankin from Loch Lomond made it to Henley for the Mastes Regatta. Friday was a very stormy day and unfortunately Eva's single scull was blown off the rack and the force of the impact, split the hull. The boat was unrowable but Mary-Ann Millar came to the rescue with a loan of her boat and Eva WON her
WE 1x final which was on Saturday.

Ailie, in a composite with Gill Prescott, was narrowly beaten (by a foot) in the Semi finals in the WD2x. She won the composite 8 with the Barens Bridge Ladies.

A note from our president to all LLRC members:
In order to continue to raise our profile amongst juniors we have been advertising in the local schools a "Try Rowing" weekend on 14 and 15 May (Poster). On each day between 10am and 3pm the intention is that if any juniors turn up they will get an introduction to rowing using a combination of ergos and boats.  All club members are invited to assist on either or both days (on water or in the boathouse) and we will also take the opportunity to give the club a bit of a spring clean.  I'll bring a BBQ along so bring food to cook as well if you want to eat!  Thanks to Paul's efforts we have been very successful in getting two new 2x's (one of which helped win one of the three Gold medals the juniors gained at SPR last week) and running an event of this type demonstrates our commitment to raising the profile of the sport amongst juniors which was one element of the justification put forward in the funding bid.

I look forward to your assistance
