    Happy New Year

    I just want to take the chance to say thank you to all our members and supporters. The year has had its up and downs as every year does but the club is still alive and thriving! With this very wet winter training is still going on and anyone is welcome to join! 

    Starting with running every Monday night from the rowing club. We will be setting off at 6:30pm so make sure you're down there for then and grab a high vis.  

    Next we have Circuits starting this Wednesday night at 6:30-8pm. This is held where it usually is at Priestlands School Gym (Right side of the cage.) Same applies as running, make sure you get there before 6:30pm so we can start on time. 


    The first race of the year will be Thames Valley Trail Head (31st January). We have a good turn out of crews for this race and will be competing in all 3 sections. This is a very popular race so we will need entries in asap to make sure we can get a chance. The form is on the notice board as usual.  

    We have the regulars racing but we will also be putting out a girls J15 crew of Eliza, Phoebe, Fern and Mads. We look forward to training with you all up to race day! 

    There will also be putting a boys crew together for the day. This will be finalised early this week so we can get training next weekend.

    Lymington rowing club has this months committee meeting on Thursday 5th November.

    I look forward to seeing you there! 



    A sad day

    It is with regret that we have to inform you of the passing of Charlie Phillips, one of our long standing and successful members.

    Charlie won novice in 1966. His junior/ senior crew were runners up in the Hants and Dorset championship in 1971. Charlie went on to row in the senior pair that won at Swanage in 1975 with Alan Taylor and became the first Lymington crew to win a senior race.

    His biggest accomplishment at the club must surely have been winning the Hants and Dorset senior sculls championship in the early eighties.

    Charlie’s fundraising activities and abilities as a shipwright helped the club acquire and maintain an assortment of boats for the members to use.


    A funeral service to celebrate Charlie’s life will be held at Bolder Church on Tuesday 3rd November at 14:00. After the service there will be a chance to remember at Bolder working men’s club. All invited.

    Our thoughts are with his family. He will be sadly missed but remembered with a smile.


    Family flowers only. Donations are welcomed to the British Heart Foundation c/o FW House and Sons Ltd.



    Hants and Dorset Dinner and Dance

    The time has come for one of the best nights of the year. 

    Dust off that dinner jacket and shine those heels because we need to celebrate.
