During its ten-year existence the Isle of Ely Rowing Club has often had to make do with hand-me-down equipment. Now, through its own fund raising efforts and the generous assistance of two local firms, it has been able to buy a new eight. Last Saturday the boat was launched for its maiden outing by the managing directors of the two donor companies: Andrew Moss of Horizon Retail Marketing Solutions Ltd and Mark Haynes of G's Mushrooms. The new boat's first competitive action will be in the Cambridge Town Bumps which take place from the 22nd to the 25th July.
