The Aftermath, Boston Rowing Marathon..

The Lincoln Rowing Centre was incredibly proud to host our friends and neighbours at the Boston Rowing Club last weekend for the start of their famous Rowing Marathon.

Boston is one of the clubs who helped us in the early days and it was a pleasure to be able to reciprocate, even if it was just offering toilets and changing rooms to the rowers! Sunday was the first time our new boat house has been used properly, the plumbing held up and everyone who came across the river to have a look around was well impressed.

We would like to say a special congratulations to Lincoln rowers Jim and Ben, the only crew from Lincoln brave enough to take part, for winning the masters E double scull event (MAS.E.2X) setting a new event record of 3 hours 50 minutes and 38 seconds. All those early morning rows to Bardney lock were well worth it!

Our thanks to Boston for making a donation towards the cleaning of the Centre and the copious amounts of toilet roll you all got through!

Results can be found on Boston’s webpage http://www.bostonrowingclub.co.uk/Boston Marathon and all equipment left in the car park has made its way to their boathouse. If you think you left anything please direct queries to Boston through this link.
