I hope you’ve had a chance to read one of the Club Day posters dotted about the club house and look forward to seeing you on the day.

I hope you are all well and have enjoyed your weekend at Henley or on the River. I just thought i would give you all a round up on HRR performances last week and a bit about Henley Veterans Regatta.

Taking place on Saturday 9th August, Maidenhead has extended its day’s racing to now include lunchtime races and 250m super sprints.

James Hanson, Maidenhead Rowing Club Captain, explains: “The Maidenhead Regatta has been running for over 100 years but we felt this year, especially with the national competition review, provided the perfect opportunity for us to trial a new format.
