Durham Amateur Rowing Club boasts a position as one of the most successful rowing clubs in the UK, regularly achieving the most wins of any club in open events. The club is proud of having a broad range of members, from international medalists to leisure rowers - and catering for beginners of all ages: juniors, seniors, veterans and disabled. The club is recognised as a centre of excellence, pioneering Amateur Rowing Association schemes such as Project Oarsome and World Class Start. Durham ARC members compete in all major national competitions each year and the club is the largest in the north of England. Durham ARC are currently re-developing their clubhouse and boatstore facilities with the help of National Lottery funding for a project expected to cost in the region of 960,000. Other major funders include the Northern Rock Foundation, the Amateur Rowing Association and the Department of Education & Skills's Playing for Success scheme. Durham Amateur Rowing Club is to be the only amateur club within the highly acclaimed Playing for Success scheme (www.dfes.gov.uk/playingfor success) in which some 150 professional sports clubs participate, including Premiership football clubs. The club is seeking sponsors and donations to help fund this project and the expansion and replacement of its boat fleet. Contact: Mr. B Hudson, Club Secretary.

Richard Walsh has been a rowing coach for thirty years. He has coached Scottish, British, Commonwealth Games and World Champion rowers. He was Rowing Team manager for the Scottish Commonwealth Games team. He is now coaching an individual rower who needs sponsorship to cover the costs of his boat, oars and transport. "This individual has the potential to go to World and Olympic level based on my assessments so far. The athlete is currently using borrowed equipment which is of the wrong size and age. If his equipment could be funded then it would be used by this individual and any other subsequent athletes I coach. Advertising could be offered by using the boat cover to carry logos, company names, etc. The new boat and oars will cost around 7,000". Contact: Richard Walsh.
