Full details and booking

Squads from 46 countries (862 clubs in total) were represented at the recent World Masters’ Regatta at Lake Bled, Slovenia.

This year’s entry was the biggest yet as clubs were attracted not only by a Central European venue with breath-takingly beautiful scenery, but also the newly introduced Club Trophy Competition; points being awarded only to crews comprised entirely from one club. Over 4700 athletes raced in more than 900 races over four days and MRC Masters’ Women's Squad showed that all the hard work put in over the preceding couple of years, had been worthwhile, as they finished a highly commendable 4th.

We are sorry to report that Michael Hogan, a member of Improvers Squad, passed away on 2nd July having been taken ill the previous evening just a few hours after stroking a 4x-.

MichaelHogan2

Michael came late to rowing enrolling for a Learn To Row course in early 2015 aged 70. On completing the course Michael joined the Improvers Group where he further developed his sculling skills. Michael’s enthusiasm for rowing was immediately apparent as he quickly became the squad’s top attender for both water outings and gym sessions. Michael also coordinated and competed with the Marlow Imps in the Thames Valley Explore League events. Always keen to progress, Michael had this year turned his attentions to mastering the 1x and was well on his way to achieving his bronze sculling proficiency award.

Michael is fondly remembered by his colleagues for his friendship, dedication and enthusiasm.

Our thoughts and condolences go his wife Annette and the family.

Congratulations to WJ18 8+ on their win this weekend!

The biggest day in the history of Marlow pararowing this past Sunday.

  • BRITISH NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS – Enormous congratulations to our very own Kingsley Ijomah, who secured a silver medal at the Brit Champs in Nottingham with a superb performance over his first ever 2k race in quite demanding conditions.

  • HEAD OF THE CHARLES REGATTA – Ben Marsden and Bruce Lynn came in a respectable 6th (out of 13) in the Inclusive 2x at the Head of the Charles in Boston, Massachusetts.  They were third 3/4s through, but faded coping with  a crazy headwind (20 mph with gusts up to 30!...).

Ben’s and Kingsley’s great results are something we can all be proud of.  Without the logistics, infrastructure, volunteer and financial support of the Marlow RC none of us could enjoy the sport much less achieve these results.  And without the camaraderie, rivalry, and encouragement of the whole squad, no one could survive the long, tedious, exhausting training required to achieve these results.

Huge congratulations to Kingsley and Ben.......and Bruce!!

Kingsley was recently interviewed about his rowing by Adrian Chiles on Radio 5 Live....checkout his interview here:  http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b07z3z43
