After a number of years we have decided to change the venue for the next Kingston Rowing Club Annual Dinner, being held on Friday 7th February 2014.
The Cardinal Wolsey is located just 200 yards from Hampton Court Place, it has recently been taken over and undergone extensive refurbishment. It is now a wonderfully decorated with a fantastic atmosphere and a top chef, the food is amazing! We will have drinks reception in the private 'Wolsey Room' and then into The Cardinal Ballroom for Dinner, with private bar!

First strike of the new season to the ladies!
If you ask some of the more senior members of the club what the Veteran regatta is about, they will likely regale you with stories of ‘having a pull’ quaffing a lot of beer and a party where you might ‘get lucky’. 20 years ago, that was not so far of the mark. If you knew which end of an oar to hold, the chances were that you would come home with a win.
Today, veteran, or as it is now known, Masters Rowing is a very different story. Gone are the beer bellies, the purple faces of heavily puffing unfit middle aged men trying to recreate their youth.
FISA World masters is now the largest regatta in the world, with races running every 3 minutes for 4 days. If you want to see luscious legs in lycra, come along. The idea of continuing to race as the years roll on has indeed caught the imagination of rowers from across the globe with 39 different nations represented.
