THE Redhouse Rowing Club (RRC) was established to accommodate all interested rowers who cannot join “restricted membership” clubs and especially to expose youngsters from disadvantaged backgrounds to the sport.

The club opened its doors in 2017 on the banks of the Swartkops River, in Towpath Street, Redhouse, a tiny 145- year-old suburb of Nelson Mandela Bay.

RRC also have several active rowers in the senior and masters divisions.

In showcasing its talent, RRC will be having an open day on Sunday (08:00-13:00), also for those who would like to try out rowing. Bring the whole family with you for a fun day out. Wear sporting clothes and takkies and bring sunblock, a cap and a towel.

RRC rowers participated in the South African National Championships which were held earlier this year in Roodeplaat Dam near Pretoria. They won:

.Second place in Junior Men’s U/16 Quadruple Scull, the crew was Jade Alberts, Alakhe Jacobs, Scott Hughes and Lymea Vimva.

.Third place in Junior Women U/15 Double Scull, the crew was Charne Bouwer and Zukhanya Ndambanbi.

.Third place in Junior Women’s U/15 Single Scull, the crew was Zukhanya Ndambanbi.

The club would like to thank the members of the public for the support of two fundraising projects. The 1st prize went to Joan Collier and 2nd prize went to Maryke Kleu and the prize for the most tickets sold went to Linsey Young.

All sponsors are thanked for their support.
