Training began in September, with rowing taking up the GA session on Monday afternoons.  Christmas came and went, and rowing took off in earnest, with training sessions on the river on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Boat naming and Mini Scratch Regatta

Posted by Julie Paillin on Monday, April 22, 2013,
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.

June - Ironbridge Regatta 2012

Posted by Julie Paillin on Monday, July 9, 2012,
It was decided that our beginners needed to experience a British Regatta and that Ironbridge Regatta would provide the best experience, both racing, beautiful surroundings and of course the Saturday night PARTY!!

Everyone arrived on the Friday night, tents were put up and the rain came down. The wettest summer ever! The club could not split their eight as it had to be glued together using carbon fibre strips due to a leak in the split. So we had arranged to kindly borrow a boat from Ironbridge...
