Members of the Old Bedfordian rowing community got together over the Christmas period to start planning the forthcoming season. While the spectre of Covid may have hung over the meeting, there was a general feeling of optimism that there would be a return to racing in the early part of the summer. Bedford Regatta, if it takes place on the 8th May, was identified as a possible first event for the Club, with the ambition of putting an eight together. Options of events for the 2021 Henley Royal Regatta (Tuesday 29 June – Sunday 4 July) were also discussed, although the consensus was that it was too early to decide on events at such an early stage.
