Rowing on Caldecotte Lake

Regatta update

A huge thank you from all at MKRC to all our visitors, for making this year's regatta so successful. As with last year, we included a full range of events, from singles to eights, juniors to Masters and again saw the very popular Primary events for newcomers to the sport. Despite this, we were determined to maintain the friendly, relaxed atmosphere that makes our event so popular.

From the feedback we’ve had, we appear to have succeeded, with nice compliments from some of our new visitors as well as our old, established friends. We look forward to seeing you all again at next year's event. We are still finding our feet in running an affiliated event, so any feedback is very welcome to allow us to develop the event for future years.
