Globe Juniors entered three crews for HRR this year two in the Fawley challenge cup and one in the diamond jubilee challenge cup, two of our crews qualified with the girl set to race against headington and lost by a narrow margin. The boys got seeded through to Thursday where they raced the lea and won, on the Friday they raced Claires court and lost by just over a length. It was a great performance and a great symbol of what has been achieved this season.

Supporting Globe RC Junior Rowing from 2003

 

§  An Invitation from Peter Smith, Joe Regan & Kenny Milton 

§  N.A.C. Port Dinner

§  Saturday 20th May 2017 - 7pm - Clarendon Hotel, Blackheath Village - £36.00pp

 

It is with great pleasure that we can announce the 1st NAC dinner at the Clarendon Hotel, Blackheath,  London on Saturday 20th May.

Our aim is to invite as many former and present Globe members as possible.

We would be delighted if you could join us for this special dinner, which will also be a good opportunity to listen to two great guest speakers who have kindly donated the time to join us for the dinner.

With many years of friendship associated with Globe Rowing Club and pleasant days enjoying each other’s company, it was during a particularly fine Côte du Rhone dinner in Henley 2003 that the idea of supporting Junior Globe rowers was formed and the ‘Never Again Club’ was formed.

Since the creation of the Never Again Club and the fundwe have given monetary support to many young rowers, particularly in helping them attend training camps.  In addition, we have part-funded some nine boats, including a safety launch.

Both founder members and dear friends Peter Van Hay and Terry Flinn also left legacies to the NAC which have further aided us to continue our support to junior rowing.

The cost is £36 per person for a 3 course dinner – two guests speaker will join us and in keeping with NAC Henley tradition a glass of port will also be included to toast Peter & Terry.

 

We very much hope you can join us.

If you would like to attend please email either

BALL CUP SUNDAY 7TH MAY 2017

posted 9 May 2017, 12:33 by Archie Kirk

We had a very enjoyable day at Eton Dorney with the development squad performing well.

The junior women's J14 2X  Grace Richards and Hannah Stevens  won a gold medal. They went into the final being the second fastest crew. The final developed into a very hard competitive race, but Hannah and Grace beat a good crew from Sudbury Rowing Club by a length. This was a great reward for all the training that they have done through the winter months.

Other results -
Bo 4th in J15 1x
Ines Kenny 6th and Leah Atkinson 7th in WJ16 1x (they were both rowing up a year)
Petar J16 1x - He did not make final, but rowed well and gained valuable experience finishing well within the pack.

Ten Globe Juniors took part  in the JIRR 2017. There were two gold medals for J15 and J16 single sculls - James and Dominic. The J16 composite (with PBDRC), Archie and Pete, missed a bronze medal by 0.2 second. Grace in the WJ14 came an admirable 2nd in the B final. The composite (with Medway) J15 2x with Bo came 4th in the B heat and the composite WJ16 8+ (with Bewl) of Izzy, Lydia, Chelsea and Eilidh came 5th in the B heat. All the squad performed fantastically.
