Dorset Holiday Parks Boat Race - July 15th, 2011

A couple of weeks back, four Dorset Holiday Parks took park in Lyme Regis Gig Club’s first ever Corporate Rowing Experience Day.

Newlands Holiday Park, WDLH, Freshwater Beach Holiday Park and Wood Farm Holiday Park all arrived at Lyme Harbour bright and early for a fun-filled day out on the water. Each team was made up of six people from the respective parks.

After a safety briefing and some dry land instruction, team members, along with some experienced rowers and a dedicated cox, took to the water for one of two morning training sessions.

This was followed after lunch by more land training and sea rowing, with some great racing in the afternoon. There were two heats and a final.

WDLH won the final race, followed closely by all other teams. The day finished with prize giving and a group meal at The Harbour Inn Lyme Regis.

The weather was perfect, the sea state ideal and a fantastic day was had by all! It was great for team building and also a really good way to work out. Everyone is looking forward to the re match next year!
