The Potomac Boat Club sweep oarsmen will be sending an eight to compete in this year's Henley Royal Regatta, in the Thames Challenge Cup.
As you can imagine, a ten-day, international trip carries a lot of costs. Securing a boat - a fast one! - and the equipment we need, dealing with registration costs, and feeding and housing eight athletes doesn't come cheap, unfortunately. We're hoping to raise $7,500 - or come as close to it as possible. How'd we get that number?
Equipment rental = $1,500
Housing = $3,500
Feeding = $400
Uniforms, racing fees, and incidental costs = $2,100
Remember, every dollar helps bring PBC closer to victory overseas!PBC is nothing without its extended family of members, visitors, and alumni, and we're asking for your support. Any contribution you can give gets us closer to our goal - the Thames Challenge Cup!
The dates of the Henley Royal Regatta this year are June 28th - July 1st, with more information at http://www.hrr.co.uk/.
