Opening Hours

August’s winners Ron & Tracy

Congratulations to all those who participated in the August members challenge. We had two challenges set last month Challenge A. Was to see how many meters you could row in a minute  Challenge B was to see how many meters you could row in a month, the target being a marathon. (42.2 km)


Our featured member for this challenge is Ron Beatty who rowed a massive 76,000 meters! Fantastic.

Congratulations to Ron who rowed an impressive 76,000 meters in the month of August. Rom commented that prior to the challenge he’d been swimming 2 km at the club most days , he found the rowing was a different challenge for him and he enjoyed the variety in his training program .

Ron averaged 2.05 mins / 500 m over the distance. Nice Job!

August Challenge Spot Prize Winner – Tracy Poole.


I found the rowing challenge really enjoyable – I’m a bit disappointed that I didn’t end up rowing more meters over the month but I have  definitely extended the distance that I am comfortable rowing in one session and have improved my rowing technique which I’m really happy about. I’m looking forward to both keeping up my rowing and the next monthly challenge.
