Junior Sponsored Row
A Fantastic effort today from the Juniors completing their Sponsored Row from Cardigan bridge, around Cardigan Island and back to Aberporth, over 10 miles!
The sea perfect for the occasion but unfortunately 3/4 of the row was completed in heavy rain. Despite this the Juniors and supporting Seniors left in high spirits, made many crew changes and landed on Aberporth beach just gone 1.30pm, completing the row in 3hr 24mins 19 secs. A fantastic result, well done guys!
All the money raised from the row will go towards ‘Amanda’s Chemo Fund’. Thank you to all who supported and donated, a fab team effort!

The Aberporth Ladies Fundraisers also held ‘Aberporth Olympics’ event this afternoon, again all money going towards ‘Amanda’s Chemo fund’. A fantastic turn out, a great opening ceremony, 10 Olympic events for children, women and men to compete in, followed by a medal presentation.

Due to weather conditions on October 25th we were unable to do the planned row from Cardigan to Aberporth, instead we decided to row the equivalent distance up and down the river Teifi.
Four crews all rowed once each up and down the river to complete the distance in a time of 2 hours 8 minutes and 35 seconds. The winner of the £25 Guess the Time competition was Mr David Williams from Tremain with a time of 2 hours 10 minutes. Congratulations to Mr Williams and thank you to everyone who took part.
The club would also like to say a special thank you to Stewart Forsyth & Helen Young for providing the support boat for the event.

Despite the weather we had a fantastic turn out to our August Bank Holiday Treasure and Scavenger Hunt. The teams all set off in fairly pleasant (well, dry) conditions not knowing what was in store. The heavens opened and as the teams returned each was wetter than the last! But with great prizes up for grabs no one was giving in!
