NRC LDS series 2012

The NRC with the help of host clubs runs the LDS (Long Distance Sculling) series every autumn.  Originally the series ran over six Saturdays, but in 2012 was down to four days (one for juniors only and three for all ages).


Host clubs in 2012 were Cambois RC, Berwick ARC, Tyne RC & Tyne United RC and Tees RC.  On each day as well as the NRC LDS event, the host club (or one of them) ran a Small Boats Head.
