We are delighted to announce that to celebrate the reopening of their refitted Putney restaurant, Wagamama are sponsoring an internal regatta for Vesta on the 13th of October!
Eagle eyed users of Rowe.rs will have already noticed the new session on the afternoon of the 13th: “Wagamama’s: Race for Ramen.” We are looking for 4 men’s eights and 4 women’s eights from the Senior and Development Squads to take part in the afternoon’s event, so please sign up as quickly as you can (Novices; your time will soon come).
We will be meeting Vesta from 13:30 to select crews and boat shells, with the first race starting at about 14:30.
There will be 2 “divisions” each of 4 crews. One division for men, one for women.
Race Start: Along the line of boats (just the same as Blackstaffe Day – outside The Duke’s Head)
Race: two abreast for approximately 350m
Race Finish: Vesta Flagpole
Each crew will race every other boat in their division; staying on the water throughout – making it a test of endurance, ability to race in scratch crews and recovery rates as well as pure sprint power. Bonus points will be awarded for winning by a clear margin.
From these results, the top two crews of each division, will race off in a Cup Final and the bottom two crews will go into a Plate Final. Wagamama will be providing prizes to all those taking part on the day.
