Les Tomlinson, Indoor member and crewmate of St George’s College Staff Team 2 at the 2017 regatta


"With very little rowing experience and even less confidence, I entered into the WRC Community Regatta. We were all complete novices but quickly worked together to become a coxed four, in what I am reliably informed, is an unsinkable boat!


In the weeks before the event we experienced some expert coaching, which meant a brief introduction on an ergo and two water sessions, by which time we are classed as water-worthy and ready to compete. The day itself was a really good setup with WRC members everywhere you turned. The marquee was the focal point of the day serving refreshments, housing an ergo challenge and a place to mingle with competitors from local businesses and schools. Our team was appointed a host from the club who ensured that our day ran smoothly and who kept us updated with competition information and general housekeeping rules. The benefits to this event are endless but most importantly it introduced people to a sport that may have felt untouchable and puts WRC firmly on the map as a club that welcomes everyone from every age and ability."
