We supported the Masters Ladies Fours in which teams from Christchurch, Poole and Southampton competed for the Mike Wall trophy. Others clubs taking place in the event included Lymington, Itchen, Westover, Coalporters, and crews from the Isle of Wight.
Christchurch Rowing Club was founded 67 years ago and has grown into a competitive and popular club for men and women of all ages and abilities. Their clubhouse is situated directly on the banks of the River Stour and enjoys fantastic views both up and downstream. In fact, this is the venue in which we hold our Christchurch painting and drawing classes and has proved to be very popular with our students, offering free parking and lots of natural light.
The host club won the event which was the first of the year, and further heats will be held throughout the summer season in the Dorset and Hampshire area.
