Truro River Rowing Club Annual Charity River Race
Sunday 24th May 2009
Truro River Rowing Club would like to invite all clubs to attend our Annual Charity River Race. The race will be starting from Sunny Corner, Malpas (launching from Boscawen Park) (not Loe Beach or Mylor) and will finish at Mylor Harbour. The first boats will start at 5pm with an allocated start time, based on a handicap system. This is important as the upper reaches of the river dry out at low tide so it is not possible to delay it..
There will be an entry fee of £1 per rower. The first three craft across the finishing line will be asked to nominate their charities.
Registration and Logistics
Registration will be at Boscawen Park, Truro adjacent to the slipway at the City end of the park. Please could all craft arrive at Boscawen Park, Truro between 1pm and 3pm. This is necessary to ensure that everyone and everything is in the right place.
Once boats are unloaded the trailer can then be towed to Mylor Yacht Harbour. This year we are offering a shuttle bus from Mylor to Truro for campers, rowers and boat towers. Space is limited so please let us know if you want to use the mini bus.
The parking at Boscawen Park Truro is limited but there is significant provision at the finish (Mylor).
Club Members will be on hand to give directions and assistance as required.
Beer, BBQ, prize giving and maybe some singing will be available at Mylor Yacht Club after the race and will continue until the beer runs out (that could be sometime).
Camping will be available for those who would like to make a night of it, a few minutes’ walk from Mylor Yacht harbour. Those wishing to camp can use the mini bus to get to the start; the field will be open from 12noon.
If you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact the club at [email protected] or phone Rob Grose on 07976926221 or Adam Connisbee on 07786767174. The same numbers can be contacted if there are any concerns regarding the weather on race day.
