Ryde Junior ladies racing in Swanage Bay

Ryde Rowing Club have announced that Wightlink will be continuing their sponsorship of the club in 2019.

The Isle of Wight ferry operator provides considerable assistance in transporting competitors, coaches and equipment to and from the Island for mainland competition throughout the year.

Wightlink’s support allows the club to compete on a mainland on a regular basis in the Hants & Dorset ARA Coastal Regatta programme during the summer months, and inland on rivers during the winter months.

It has also been announced that TLM Laser, the laser marking and engraving machines company, has agreed to continue as the main sponsor for the 2019 Ryde Rowing Regatta.

TLM Laser’s Andy Tom’s son, Ben, rows for Ryde and Andy, a strong supporter of the club, has firsthand experience of the Regatta having provided and skippered the Umpires boat for both the 2016 and 2017 Regatta – a duty he will be performing again for the 2019 event.

This year’s regatta will take place on Saturday 18th May.
