Captain Phil Marler was keen to stress the importance of competitive success to the future of Beccles Rowing Club when he observed “We have built a family club with members of all ages, sexes and fitness and expectation levels. Everybody is welcome and we provide tailored coaching provision and assistance to everybody.
“There is a commitment required to compete at higher levels however and, if we are to be treated as a serious member of the rowing network, we need to invest some serious time and effort into being successful.
“We would like to attract commercial sponsorship and assistance and we need to be competing successfully on a national level to progress in that way.
“Competitive success in the club filters down to junior levels and inspires individuals. It creates a winning culture and also a desire to compete, to proudly represent Beccles and to strive for success,” he concluded.
