    Warning to prospective sponsors: This otherwise enterprising advertiser has slightly ignored the Henley Boat Races rules, which reserve the right to put names on warm-up kit for full-race sponsors. While some slack may be negotiated if this rower's race is not sponsored with a few days to go, that is entirely at the discretion of the HBR Chairman and Committee. The same is true of sponsors' names on blades - these are reserved race-day rights. Sorry Will. Rachel Quarrell, Rowing Service editor and Henley Boat Races vice-Chairman.

  72. SVDR
    hi all, i was reading throught this site an thought i would leave a link to the website company i work for, we supply CCTV products, but we have a product called an SDVR. which is used by many different sports groups like mountain bikers, rocket enthusiasts, gliders, parachuters etc etc, and basically these items all you to place a very small camera on your rowing boat and record your journey, so you can play back and show freinds coaches etc. heres the
    link to the seperate items and this link takes you to a package deal we do. james.
    P.s, not to sure the package deal would be suitable for rowers as it uses a 'covert button' camera, and i would guess a slightly bugger camera would be required on a rowing boat. perhaps a bullet camera would do the job better.
    P.P.s hope i havent offended anyone posting as 'Advert' here, but i thought it might be useful.
