Our Club

Lymington Amateur Rowing Club was established in 1881. Our clubhouse can be found on the corner of Quay Road in Lymington. The club has and always will promote the fun & social side of the sport as well as the serious aspect of competitive rowing.

If you would like to try rowing for a bit of fun or if you are an established rower wishing to train hard please get in touch, join up now or come along to the club house, we are looking forward to seeing you.

    Ryde & Shanklin Regatta Report 2014

     

    Boat Race (Oxford v Cambridge) 2014

    Evening all, 
    This Sunday (6th April) sees one of the few televised rowing events of the year where the blues, light and dark, battle it out on the Thames.
    We'll be opening up the bar for all to come and join in from around 4 (maybe a bit earlier) on Sunday for all those after an mid afternoon thirst quencher.
    Come on Oxford!
    See you there,
    Waddy

    Notice to all river users.

    All river users need to be aware of the recent Notice to Mariners relating to Lymington River. The next stage of the harbour protection works is about to begin, this time on the East bank of  river by the Enticott Starboard Hand Post at the entrance to Pylewell Lake. A navigation exclusion zone will extend as far as the normal deep water channel. Perhaps more significantly to normal navigation will be the presence in the vicinity of the works of various working craft, including barges carrying rocks, piling vessels, and a tug.

    Full details and a chart of the area affected can be found on the Harbour Commission Web site at http://www.lymingtonharbour.co.uk/Notice_to_Mariners/notice%20to%20mariners.htm.

    New Rowing Kit

    Hello all
     
    The club needs to send off an order to Godfrey soon to get our club kit for the season. For those who are new, Godfrey is where we get our racing singlets and all in ones from (among other training gear). You will need a Lymington coloured singlet in order to race for Lymington this season. Please have a look at the Godfrey website (http://godfrey.co.uk/rowing) and search for Lymington.
     
    Once you have chosen your desired piece of kit (size etc) please email me to let me know the details (secretary@lymingtonrowingclub.co.uk) - it is cheaper for yourself if the club does a bulk order.
     
    It can take up to two months for the kit to arrive, so I will be putting the bulk order in with Godfrey on Monday 7th April.
     
    For those learn to row members who are waiting to get back out on the water, Waddy (captain) will be in touch soon.
     
    Thank you,

    March Update

    Colin Diffy will be running and organising a 200 club, starting in May 2014. If you would like to enter, you will need to pay a small fee for a number between 1 and 200. If your number is selected at each month's committee meeting, you will win a proportion of the total entrance fee's!
    Geoffrey Fryer mentioned in his safety report this month that crews should remember to check their heel restraints are working correctly and that crews should always keep an eye on the weather before they go afloat to make sure that the conditions are safe for your ability.
    Finally, and perhaps most importantly for most of us, there will be a significant change to the way regatta fee's are paid this year. In the past the fee's have been collected at boat loading or even after the event. The club is still owed money for regatta's last season, including from people who put up an entry but never raced.
    In future, the club will expect the money for your race before the entries are submitted. If you have not paid either myself, Terry (treasurer) or Waddy (captain) before the entries are sent off, your crew will not be entered and you will have to apply for a late entry if you still wish to race.
    Keep an eye on the notice board for regatta posters beginning to appear.
