Racing is a driving force in any rowing club. It provides a yardstick, as well as great incentive for improving skills, team building, pushing your limits and just having fun. Here is a list of upcoming races and events club members might be interested in .These events are not necessarily sponsored by the club. For some of them, it would be up to individual crews to get it all together to participate.

Mari will provide a Google Sheet for each event and see who – if anyone – signs up.

Also check the Google Calendar for upcoming races of interest.
