Club Members from Lymington write about our organisation's recent activities here including News and Regatta Results.
Just a quick reminder for this coming weekend. The launch of the new scull, the Al Keir, is taking place on Saturday 2nd at 11.30am. It would be great to see a large turnout of people there, so please come along!
There will be a buffet, so can as many people as possible bring along a plate of food?
Finally, there have been a few reports that the club isn't looking its finest at the moment, so a cleaning session will be taking place at 10 saturday morning.
See you all at the weekend
The club is please to announce the arrival of a brand new scull ready for the 2014 season, which will be named after Al Keir.
After a small informal launching at the quay Saturday 2nd November 11:30am, the committee would like to invite all club members past and present to join them at the club for a small buffet and drinks in the club house.
Lymington Rowing Club have competed at the Itchen Junior Sprint Regatta and come away with three second places in the higher difficulty categories this weekend.
Ryan Chalk has picked up two J16 victories in the main season at Itchen and Poole. 14 year old Chalk competed against much older opponents from Itchen and Christchurch in the final of the “A” category.
The A category is intended for the more experienced of the young competitors and Chalk held his own despite being more seasoned over the longer Novice races he has competed in this year.
Chalk later teamed with Keaton Leyland Jones who was competing in his debut event. They raced in the A heat of the boys J14 double scull and picked up another second place despite a strong effort.
The final Lymington competitors on the day were Izzy de Wattripont and Megan Skellon in their first race as a girls J15 double scull.
De Wattripont and Skellon managed a second behind Ryde despite having the disadvantage of only having a small number of outings together after the main
Lymington will start preparing for the BTC Autumn Head on October 27th and the remainder of the winter season.

The Club Regatta is on Saturday 19th October. This is a fun event held in the Lymington River. Crews are mixed with everyone from Novice to Senior, J15 to Veteran 50 in the same crew.

The AGM is on Friday 18th October at 7:30pm. This is where we vote for the Committee for the next year. We also vote on the membership fees for 2014. All members are entitled to attend and to vote. This year there are decisions to be made that can not be made at any other time of the year. This is your opportunity to put your opinions across. It would be good to have a large turn out for both. The new officers of the club form will be on the board down the club to fill in.
