Commodore’s welcome

Welcome to you all.  It is Wroxham Week again!  One week later than usual due to the late break up of schools.

We have the usual full week of racing for all classes, and will once again be finishing with the keenly contested ‘Gold Cup’ race on Sunday afternoon (don’t forget to buy a sweepstake ticket).

Everything begins with the Commodores Reception and free buffet, which this year is on the first Saturday. 

This is followed by an amazing range of social events with fine dining, films, quizzes, children’s entertainers and a fantastic Circus themed party to round off the week on Saturday evening.

We will have the usual fabulous fun events with rowing (and paddleboard) races on Thursday and the famous Wroxham Week duck race on Friday – don’t forget buy a duck.

Most importantly of all, we have the many club members, staff and volunteers who together will make this 80th Anniversary Wroxham Week a huge success.

We hope you will all have a great time.

Gary Ross, Commodore.
