Registered Charity 1128832
As some of you may already know, CBRC has previously entered crews into the UK Surfboat Rowing League over the last couple of summers - and now we intend to race throughout the 2008 season.
The "Bristol Barracudas" have recently acquired a surfboat and all associated equipment, and now YOU have the chance to have a go!
Below is the calendar of events at which the boat will be racing, and there is an opportunity for you to join in. All you need is a crew of four and some speedos!
We will provide the boat, blades and a steersperson (sweep).
The format of the racing is 6 lane sprints out to sea, around a buoy and back to the beach. All crews race at least 3 heats - so none of this "knocked out in the first round" business!

All you need to do is contact Rus and indicate which events you would like to attend. We can then arrange a little paddle to get you warmed up before the racing action.
