Hello All,

Another weekend of some good racing from some of our club members at Henley Sculls 2014, the conditions on the river as you probably know have changed in the last few days but never the less Maidenhead had some strong performances notably good performances coming from our Wj14 girls coming in a solid 3rd and 4th behind very strong Henley RC A and B crews. Results can be found hereSo please take a look.

Hello All,

As you know last weekend was Fours head and Vets Fours head and we have some great results! Special mention must go to our Junior quad who raced open junior quads and came a fantastic 5th over all (and the majority of these guys are 15!) so a massive well done to the boys. The women’s squad also came home with a strong performance in the IM1 quads coming in in the top 10. Please have a look at the Fours head results. Well done to the junior boys junior girls and the women’s squad at this early season event.

At vets Fours head we had also some very strong performances even in the possibility of cancellation and the eventual shortened course our vets crews did us proud wi special mention going to our women’s IM3 quad coming in 2nd overall in there division. All our vets Fours crews achieved a top 10 finish which is testament to all the hard work being put into the squads, great results and well done all our crews results are as below:

This weekend we also had the lone representative of Roger Macrae competing for our club in the Turin Silver Skiffs thats a gruelling 15k endurance race on the River Po in Turin. Roger has been on training overdrive and his latest results have lade testament to that. Its no easy task going alone to a regatta, let alone in a different country but he did it. He came in 217 overall out of 519 scullers and 18th in his division put of 55 scullers in a time of 49.07.040. Well Done Roger!

……………

As the title suggests the Thames is still being kind to us and lets hope it is all winter! Even so please make sure you are kitted up for the cold and familiar with all the rules of rowing at the moment, you may have seen a few new maps that the safety team have been working on in regards to safety on the stretch so please just take a look and take a mental note of any thing you deem new. 

The club AGM date has been released it is on Saturday the 22nd of November, all are welcome to this as its a chance to see how your club is progressing and how the future of our club is developing. I hope you can join us for this.

Also the club Christmas Party date has been confirmed for FRIDAY the 19th DECEMBER the poster is below we really hope everyone can join us for this great end of year event! also don’t forget Christmas eights the day after!!!!

On a Special note,

If you are passing over the bridge one night please have a look at the club as we have been working on something that enhances our great clubhouse! I hope you like it! Special mention goes to our Club Steward Zibby for scaling the heights and putting in all the time to make this happen! Thank you.

Have a great week,

Kind Regards,

James

Some great results from both events, performances like these are all making Maidenhead RC an even better club and team to be apart of! Continue training hard and supporting each other and we will see more results like these!

General House Keeping

Just some general things to keep in mind around the club.

  • please make sure you pick up your water bottles after you sessions
  • please make sure you put the tressels away after use.
  • And please make sure you shut the boathouse doors if your the last one out.

Club Info

In the next few weeks there will be chance for members to have a run through on fixing boats and minor repairs I will send out a date as soon as I can. It would be great if we had a few members for each squad come along.

Yours as always,

James

Hello All,

Tomorrow marks the first Major event on the British rowing calendar Pairs Head. We have 12 crews entered (crew lists below). Members from most our squads are competing. The women’s squad is fielding a strong contingent tomorrow with four doubles and a pair, hopefully they can carry on their upward trend in results and performances on the tideway tomorrow. The vets and mens squad have three boats between them two pairs and a double we look forward to what these crews can pull out on the tideway. And finally our juniors are out in two junior women’s doubles and two junior mens doubles. The juniors have been really hitting the training hard at the start of the season, I’m sure we will see some strong performances from them tomorrow.

Good luck to all our crews tomorrow!!!

If you are not racing and fancy coming to support our crews its just a short trip up the M4. The crews are boating from Thames Tradesmen and the race starts at 1pm the race is from Chiswick to the Harrods depository there are many good places to see the race from on either bank. For more info visit the website at Pairs Head .

Re my last club email I am still waiting to hear if anyone would be interested in heading up a small project around the club to put up some up to date photos of our club training and our more successful crews in the last 3-5 years, I feel it would be quite a rewarding project to head up so if your interested please please let me know.

Yours as always,

James

Hello All,

I hope you are all well and busy getting stuck into the new season. It was great to see the club so busy on the weekend and everybody getting stuck into their training. I hope you have all seen the email from Billy in regards to tomorrows time trial its a great way of assessing your speed early on in the season, so if you fancy it please get stuck in. Also we have some crews at the Isis small boats head this weekend and then a lot more at Wallingford Small Boats Head next saturday so please if you about come and support our racing crews.

A few weekends ago was the sponsored row. Thank you to all who took part and all who supported and thank you to Laura for organising the long row along with her team. 

I know there are a lot more photos and videos around but i put this video together of the long row so click on the link and take a look.

Maidenhead Long Row Video

This week emails went out to all the members about the new seasons kit. I hope you like the designs as a lot of work has gone into getting it right. I feel quite strongly about our kit as its one of the things that defines us as a club. Over the last few years so many designs have come out from stripes to inverted colours. If you look around at some of the old photos you’ll see that our original racing strip is black bottoms with the green top and white piping our original colours! so in all the new kit is the original kit. There are lots of other bits to have a look at like our new casual polo tops and coloured leggings so please have a look.

Its about time we put some up to date photos of recent crews around the club. We’ve had some great crews in the last few years which deserve a place on our walls around the club. If any member would like to take on the task please let me know.

Yours as always,

James
