There was disappointment for the Wightlink-sponsored Ryde Rowing Club crews on Saturday (5th August) as Lymington Rowing Club’s Regatta was cancelled for the second time this season.

This time round the decision to cancel the event was made on Friday, meaning the expense of travelling to the mainland for Ryde and the other Island clubs was spared. The Regatta will not now be re-scheduled this season as next Saturday (12th August) sees the last Hants & Dorset ARA Championship Regatta of the season take place at Bournemouth.

Next weekend’s event will give the club’s Coastal Junior Sculler, Dale Buckett, a final opportunity to secure the Associations Championship, where he currently shares first place with his season long rival from Christchurch.

The Club will also have an opportunity to take a share in the Ladies Novice Sculls Association Championship to add to the Ladies Coastal Junior Fours Championship that is already secured, along with their selection to represent the Association at this year’s South Coast Championship on Saturday 2nd September.
