After the Masters Squad’s achievements at the World Rowing Masters Regatta in Bled, Slovenia last year, the Squad travelled to Germany in July to compete at the Euro Masters Regatta in Munich. The purpose built multi-lane course on the outskirts of Munich was amazing; crystal clear water with a light breeze, creating fair 1000m racing across all lanes. A breath of fresh air from […]
For the second successive year Exeter Rowing Club staged a charity race at the home regatta held on July 14th. Funds raised were donated to Hospice Care.
The 163rd Marlow Regatta proved a real challenge for Exeter Rowing Clubs top crews but yielded some of the best results in the clubs recent history. Two coxless fours made the long journey from Devon, to the Olympic venue at Eton Dorney to mix it up with some of the best talent in the country.

The conditions were as good as I’ve seen at the NWSC at Holme Pierrepont, […]
