Half Term is here…

Well done to all students that have made it down to the boathouse this half term. We have enjoyed success at the events we have attended and have also achieved many PB’s on the ergo, lets hope there is more to come.

Please enjoy the break, rest, recover and make your mum a cuppa to thank her for driving you to all the training sessions!

HRR – Senior Girls Race Time

Our senior girls will be competing against Beckett B at 19:30 this evening. 

The crew have been preparing well by paddling on the course, resting at our house just outside of Henley and having the odd match race against Marlow RC and the NZ national team eight! (We let them past!)


If you are able to give our girls a shout then please do, if not just scream at the laptop screen as all races are streamed live on YouTube. 

SMASH IT GIRLS!!

H.R.R – BMS Preview

Henley Royal Regatta 2017 is less than 24 hours away, where does the year go!

This year BMSBC will be represented by the senior girls, competing in the Diamond Jubilee Challenge Cup. This is a fantastic achievement to even be in the regatta; in an event where there are only 16 places available. Our quad had worked and raced hard throughout the season so that they were not required to attend the qualifying races, a nice feather in their caps!

The quad will face Beckett B on Thursday, a crew made up of some talented sweep rowers and certainly not to be under estimated.

BMS will have the usual drinks and nibbles available in Butlers Field on Wednesday lunchtime. Please do come along and chat all things rowing and BMS.

Unfortunately the boys side of the boat club had a tough day at qualifiers. The Fawley quad missing out by just over 1 second in some very unfavourable conditions. The second boat, a PE eight, missed out by just under 1 second. A good result for the young crew but still disappointing for the boys.

We were so close to having three crews in the event, but ended up wth one. A testament to the efforts being put in across the boat club, but margins matter in sport and unfortunately we were just the wrong side of them last Friday night. Your time will come!

I hope everyone enjoys the regatta and I would like to thank you for your on going support of BMSBC.

 

Sunday 18th June – Road Closure

Dear Parents/Pupil,

Apologies for the late e-mail, however I have just been made aware that The Embankment and other roads around the river will be closed Sunday morning due to the Bedford 10k Run, this will make access to the boathouse difficult. THIS WILL INFLUENCE DROP OFF AND COLLECTION.

I would suggest to drop students off around the far side of Russell Park, or anywhere along Castle Road and then students can walk the remainder of the journey. Another good location may be Aspects McDonalds.

Please try to factor this into your journey time!

Please do spread the word via text, WhatsApp or any other means.

Many thanks,

Mr Bavington

Director of Rowing
