Cross Channel Row UpdateIt looks like the Cross Channel Row is coming together thanks to Helen S and Lou’s best efforts. They have been in touch with MK Don’s Sports Education Trust (SET), the Mayor’s choice of charity in order to jointly run the event with Ashley Whitmore. They will also be joined by Judith Hildreth from SET who will coordinate the fundraising. The row is now planned for the weekend of the 26th-29th April, weather dependant. Two boats filled with a mixture of MKRC rowers, SET volunteers and possibly some corporate volunteers will row across together. One of these boats will be ‘elite’ group and will be aiming to break the record crossing time, whilst the other will be a little more relaxed. This doesn’t mean they don’t need to be fit though! Endurance training will commence for all rowers on the 1st January, with all non-MKRC joining the circuit sessions to build up fitness. The final part of training will take place on Hayling island, near Portsmouth on the 9th-10th February to test the rowers on the sea.
