Youth Regatta postponed

Club secretary Lorna writes: I am afraid I have some news which is disappointing. At last week’s committee meeting, the decision was made to postpone the Youth Event scheduled for September 18th.

This was a decision not taken lightly, but the committee felt that because of the worsening Covid situation, especially in the school setting where most of our youth members come from, having a gathering of youth rowers is not a necessary risk that needs to be taken at this time.

There are also a few events on in Port Edgar (including the Queensferry Boat Club Regatta in the bay) that day which would have impacted our activities.

I know this is not news that you will want to hear to add to the postponement of our own regatta last month, but we feel it is the correct decision at this point.  I really hope 2022 brings us better luck!

Regarding social rowing on Saturday, it starts at 09:00am so both boats will also now be available in the afternoon if required, as the Youth Regatta will no longer be taking place.
