Welcome to the Great Marlow Swans
We are now a registed charity!! Our charity number is 1147662.
In my last piece I wrote about how mild the weather had been at the start of the year and how Springlike it felt - well how wrong could I be?!
The Year 8s have just competed in their first events and the results look promising. There are a large group of keen and eager Year 7s who have recently started going out on the water.
We held a fun Rowing Information Evening back in June for Year 7 parents.
The Swans trustees and committee are working hard to bring structure to all aspects of rowing at GMS and alongside this are hosting events to raise the profile of the club and to raise funds to help with purchases of new equipment.
We recently held our inaugeral Inter House Regatta and end of year BBQ down at Longridge on a wet Saturday. Endurance came first and won the shield. Due to its success next year's date is already in the diary which is Saturday 13th July 2013.
This constant rain we've been having has played havoc with training and lots of regattas have been cancelled due to the river flooding, running too fast and being on red. As everyone keeps saying this is unheard of this late in the season. Both coaches and rowers alike are getting frustrated because of this. But despite all this we had a J16 crew race at Women's Henley Regatta, won a gold medal at the Nat Champs and the Osborn twins rowed for GB against France.
Have a great summer and I look forward to seeing you during the next academic year.
Thank you for your continued support.
