Posted by Julie Paillin on Monday, February 23, 2015,

The course of 3500m ran downstream from the Riverside Hotel in Branston to the Burton Regatta finish line.The weather was calm with occasional drizzle and light breezes.

After a long hot day of challenging races we were all sitting along the bank waiting for the final 2 races of the day, the W.IM3.8+ and Nov.8+ both of these being straight finals. It was getting late, most people had finished racing however it was now time for both crews to check the boat and prepare for their race before heading up to the start line. We (W.IM3.8+) rowed up first ahead of our opposition Burton Leander, both crews attached to the stake boat and with some difficulty due to the ...

Win for Devil's Elbow W.Nov.2x at York Regatta

Posted by Lucy Joyce on Thursday, August 7, 2014,
After a few weeks of practice in our double, Vikki and I decided to enter York Regatta. In our first round we were drawn against Van Mildert College of Durham University. We got a good start and won our heat! 
Coming back into the landing stage we saw that our opposition for the next round, Peterborough City, we're already boating. We didn't even have time to get out of the boat and had to go straight back up to the start line. This time we were beaten off the start, but pulled back a bit arou...

Posted by Julie Paillin on Friday, May 9, 2014,
This past bank holiday Monday saw the culmination of yet another successful learn to row course at Devil's. Many new faces have dedicated time to learn the basics of water safety, capsize drills and rowing technique. In what many continue to describe devils as a fun warm and friendly environment in which to discover the sport of rowing. The new starters all seemed to have enjoyed it and many looking to future and being part of our little club.
On a warmish and breezy Monday, we finish the lea...

Posted by Julie Paillin on Tuesday, April 15, 2014,
Here at Devil's it feels like it has been a long winter with high water and poor conditions. But this hasn't stopped alot of things happening down on the river. Both men's and ladies squads trained hard for various events and the ladies did manage a good showing in Head of the river. Sadly the men's race was called off due to the conditions. 
Numbers have grown a little over the cold months as have the number of boats, with a little kindness from fellow local clubs we now have a good fleet of ...

Devil's Elbow win Rearsby Tug of War

Posted by Lucy Joyce on Friday, December 27, 2013,
Yesterday, a few members of Devil's Elbow Rowing Club headed over to Rearsby to compete in their annual Tug of War competition. Nicola Cheesman, Kellie Gage and myself (with Julie Paillin as photographer)  along with three girls we met on the day entered as a ladies team. After watching all the men, it was our turn to pull. We dug our foot holes in the mud, grabbed the rope and got ready. Since the Tug or War was over a brook and the men had already been, when it was our turn the ground was e...

Posted by Vikki Thomas on Sunday, December 8, 2013,
Friday night I arrived in Cardiff after a long hectic train journey following a busy day at the Clothes Show Live. Tired from all the shopping I soon went to sleep to prepare for the day ahead. An early morning energizing breakfast for me, well... a pain au chocolate and a hot chocolate but definitely not any of my Dad's beetroot juice! Tensions started to build as I was waiting for the taxi to arrive...I even had to return to the Hotel's reception to ask for the room key back as I needed ano...

Soar Head 2013!!

Posted by Steve Jones on Thursday, November 28, 2013,
Well Saturday 23rd November a fairly large contingent from the Devil's made the short trip down to Loughborough BC to take part Soar head. I say short trip as you can still see the power station stacks that are adjacent to the club from the river bank at Loughborough.
I think everyone can concur that this was by far the coldest morning of the year and with brass monkey's crying everywhere, we set about getting boats rigged and bodies kept warm. We had particapants in all three of the divisiio...

October 27th 2013.....A date to remember for many involved at the club, but it all started out so quietly. A balmy autumnal Sunday morning down by the Trent in Burton, rowers from far and wide assembled. Amongst this merry crowd were the rowers of Devils Elbow and avid support. Promptly on arrival the assembly of the craft took place that would carry us along on our dual with river and foe, meticulous attention to every nut and bolt, whilst we slipped in the sticky mud under foot.with on goin...

Beeston Row 4/8/13

Posted by Dan Joyce on Monday, August 5, 2013,
We began planning our adventure on Saturday night after the Row4fun day. We didn’t really know what to do and decided that it would be a good idea to try and row to Nottingham. After looking at the map and working out where we needed to boat from we decided that the best boats to take would be a double with Nicola and Simon rowing it, and Shrivenham that would be rowed and coxed by Kellie, Babs, Lucy and Dan. We then collected the blades and boats and carried them to the other side of the w...

Vesta Head 2012 – My Story - Nicola

2012 had been a great year for Rowing, I’d rowed in the Queens Jubilee Pageant and set up a new rowing club with 2 friends.  Devils Elbow Rowing Club which opened August 2012. 

However, it had been a disappointing year for racing, Ironbridge, St Neots, Soar Head and many others all cancelled because of the rain.

I was getting fed up with not racing! So as the end of 2012 drew closer I really wanted to finish off the year with one more race.

I’d a...

Welbeck's Scratch Regatta Report

Posted by William Vinnell on Friday, April 26, 2013,

On Saturday the 20th of April, Welbeck College joined Devils Elbow Rowing Club for a small get together at the club. The weather was boiling and the water flat, perfect conditions for the boat naming, the barbeque and the scratch regatta we had planned. We kicked things off with the boat naming ceremony, with ‘Doc Morgan’ being named by none other than... Doc Morgan and the clubs very own Jim naming ‘The Lion’.

So the day had finally arrived that I had been waiting for. It has been a long time coming, I started applying for funding for these new boats and putting in my heart and soul into the project at another local club. My efforts were being wasted and soon enough we had our own club DERC to try once again to raise the funds for get these boats which are so vital to growing the club. 
The boats are imported by Neil's sister Sandra, all the way from China. On the order form I had stated a Devil's t...

Bristol Head

Posted by Julie Paillin on Wednesday, March 6, 2013,
First Time for all of us at Bristol. It was interesting to see the boatshed and lack of storage and gym in a separate building nearby. The docks were fabulous to row in, difficult to keep your eyes in the boat as their was so much to see.

So from the hosts point of view the story is a little different. Christmas party planning with Neil is challenging as he wanted to do the big shop. I however had done a spreadsheet (one of my many obsessions) and worked out exactly how much to buy of everything depending on how many were coming. 
We had help with Naomi doing the smoked salmon starter, Michelle doing the soup and Lauren's Mum Eileen doing the Chocolate Roulade and Hannah W's Gran providing the home-made Christmas Pudding. So al...

It was Christmas (ish) and December the 8th was upon us. This could only mean one thing. Devil’s Elbow celebrating their first Christmas together.

The longest 14 minutes of my life...

Posted by Hannah Reeves on Monday, December 10, 2012,

Well, Burton Head...what can I say really? The only other race the majority of us new comers have ever rowed in was a 1km sprint. That was daunting (I’m not going to lie, did you see the size of the guys for Evesham?) but this, this was something else.

Division 1: W.IM3.2x (the ladies double with Jooles and Nic. Time to finish: 0:14:30) and IM3.4x- (the men’s coxless quad consisting of Neil, Jeremy, Jim and Matt. Time to finish: 0:13:49)

Earlier in the year the two senior ladies from Devil’s Elbow Rowing Club (DERC) rowed in Plymouth for the Eddystone Lighthouse Challenge and met Anneke Elliott who was racing in their ladies crew as the forth crew member.
