Sheldon Bosley Knight were delighted to sponsor the 2019 Evesham Regatta which took place on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th May. The annual event organised by Evesham Rowing Club has been held every year since 1864 and attracts competitors from clubs as far away as Poole, Northampton, Cardiff and Huntingdon. This year over 400 crews took part, ranging in age from young teenagers to adults in their 70s.
The regatta was a great success and despite the chilly wind, the weather remained dry and provided great entertainment for both competitors and spectators alike, with the occasional mishap and capsize into the water to add to the drama and excitement.
Sheldon Bosley Knight sponsored 4 races during the course of the weekend. Tony Rowland from our Evesham office who is a keen rower himself, and a member of the rowing club committee, won a coveted ‘Evesham Pot’ in one of the races, which he promptly filled with beer to celebrate!
The Regatta is supported by many local businesses and volunteers and all funds raised are ploughed back into the Club, some of which is used to fund their ‘Learn to Row’ programmes for juniors and adults to learn the basic skills of rowing.
