Marlow Regatta - Volunteers and Organisers

It wouldn't be possible to run the Marlow Regatta each year without the help of all the volunteers. Could you help us to run the 2012 Regatta on Saturday 16th or Sunday 17th June? Volunteers roles include registering crews, assisting crew boating, results printing, paperwork distribution, radio commentary and data entry. Any time you have available would be useful from 1 hour to a whole day (with breaks). Please contact our volunteer coordinator Georgina Jagger via email to volunteer@themarlowregatta.com if you would like to help out on either day.

We are also looking for people who would like to join the organising team to prepare and run the regatta beyond 2012. If you could assist with Marketing, Website, Entries, IT, Sponsorship or in any general capacity we would like to hear from you. Please contact the Hon Secretary for further details.

Dedicated Marlow Regatta President Retires

For nearly 60 years Mr Bill Findlay has been a stalwart of the Marlow Regatta. He has held various positions within the committee during his years of unfaltering service. Most recently he has been the Regatta’s President. On Wednesday 28th March Bill Findlay retired from this position. Bill has undoubtedly been one of the most hands on members of the committee and has always been the first to get stuck in! Whilst in Marlow, his skill in laying the course, piling the start, and then constructing the various items within the Enclosure was unsurpassed. There are few individuals as committed to this event and the sport of rowing as Bill.

The regatta has experienced extensive changes during his tenure on the committee and Bill has played a central role in establishing the Regatta in its new venue at Dorney Lake. Unquestionably Marlow Regatta is indebted to Bill for his commitment and support over the past sixty years. On 1st April 2012 a lunch, attended by approximately 70 of Bills’ Rowing and Regatta friends was held at Leander Club to celebrate his contribution to the sport. A portrait, painted by a fellow committee member Hugh Evans was presented in recognition of his service.

The Presidency has now passed to Mr John Chapman. Marlow Regatta would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr Bill Findlay and his family for their support and also wish Mr Chapman all the best for his Presidency.
