Liverpool University Boat Club

It is with great pleasure that we can announce that this year we are sponsoring the Liverpool University Boat Club.

The text below was posted today on the Liverpool University Boat Club page:
Each year we run a week long training camp, which greatly enhances our performance. In 2020 we are taking 3 coaches and 45 athletes to the north of France.
This year, we have been lucky enough to be sponsored by The Boating Association, who have kindly donated £500. This will pay for one of our coaches and also cover the majority of our transport fees.
On behalf of LUBC, we would like to say a huge thank you to The Boating Association for your generosity.
This donation will greatly benefit the development of our squads.

The Trust will manually control the lights to “navigation flow high – Do Not Proceed” on receipt of information from the EA during the works.
This information will only be available during office hours and may lag actual navigation flow conditions, extra care should be taken at all times before proceeding. If in doubt do not navigate, seek further advice.
