Walbrook Boat and Kit Strategy 2018

Date Posted: 15 June 2018

Update on Boat Strategy

Back at the AGM we released details of the first phase of the Clubs Boat Strategy, which was to sell under-utilised boats namely the Men’s Heavyweight Pair and one of the Men’s Eights, replacing them with two Heavyweight Singles and a Heavyweight Racing Quad. I’m please to say that we are 99% of the way there with the final single being delivered soon!

Phase 2 of the strategy is still to fill gaps, where we don’t currently have suitable boats, and hence the committee has approved the following strategy:

  • Purchase of a Club Level Heavyweight Quad
  • Purchase of a Racing Quality Double for Women.
  • Replace the Club Level Doubles – Walbanger and Walflower
  • Replacement for the broken XJSWal
  • Addition/Replacement of Sculling Blades

We anticipate Phase 2 being completed this year, boats are being active sought. The provisional plans for Phase 3, which will occur in 2019 is to upgrade/refurb/replace some of the older boats to improve the standards of these boats. As always the committee regularly reviews the needs of the club and will update the strategy if required.
