To mark the Club’s bicentenary in 2018 we shall be holding a number of very special events, in the UK and around the world, to help celebrate our achievements across the past two hundred years.
The core ethos of Leander Club is centred on good oarsmanship and good fellowship, and we hope these events will not only give Members much to enjoy, but will augment our outreach programme which is so important in leaving a lasting legacy within our sport.
Full details our events will be published in the autumn edition of Leander News, so please don’t ring the office for details or bookings just yet! We welcome ideas for other activities (especially if you are prepared to help organise them), and here is the current list of planned events for your diary:
