We did it!

A huge thank you to all who voted and got others to vote for our Community AED project. As one of the first projects to reach 1000 votes, and amazingly in just one week, votes for our project have been suspended and we have been granted the funding subject to due diligence. If you still have votes remaining, why not support another worthy cause

The warmth of the welcome should dispel any such winter gloom. Spouses/partners most welcome also

Masters: your views on the new competition framework

The Pairs Head was the first head race to use the new British Rowing competition framework. Crews were grouped into different Pennant categories according to their number of CRI points, and further grouped into broad age groups with no time handicaps applied, e.g. all B/C championship crews race against each other with no handicaps.

Several feel the new system generally unfair and have written to Karon Phillips, British Rowing Masters Committee Chairman - for more information about her and to feedback on the new system, please go here. She has been very supportive and asks as many Masters as possible to write to her; the more people who write, the more likely it is British Rowing will recommend a change in the rules of racing.

If you feel strongly about it, please write to her at karon [at]
