IMG_3815Down

2017 Training Days: Sunday 25th June & Sunday 9th July 1-4pm

As in recent years, we will host two FREE training days. This is the ideal opportunity for complete novices to come along and learn how to skiff, dongle or punt from some of the most experienced and skilled Regatta competitors around.

We will be based at the Wargrave Boat Club, and there will be a shuttle ferry available to bring you across from the Shiplake bank.

The training days are built around a fun atmosphere and a have-a-go mentality. So whatever your level of skill, feel free to come down and join in.

Trainers will be on hand on Sunday 25th June and Sunday 9th  July from 1-4pm.

Punting clinics

Punting in canoes is becoming more popular each year and to support those new to punting or those that spend too much time in the water WSR are offering two punting clinics.  These will take place between 5-7pm on Tuesday 18th and Thursday 20th July.   Punting experts will be on hand to coach and support.

Please book your practice session as normal.  If new to punting,  you will be taken to Wargrave Boat Club to have your first session in a punt.  Once you have mastered the punt you can then move onto the canoe.

SPECIAL NOTE for SHIPLAKE:  There will be transport across the river from the Shiplake side – please park on Mill Lane and walk down because parking will NOT be available in the regatta field.

We look forward to seeing you!

Practice bookings open on Thursday 13th July at 4pm.
