Tonight we held 3 consecutive Durham Regatta meetings where we formally completed our 3 year journey and have now converted our 178 year old committee into a legal entity in its own right. Its the same group of people organising the Regatta but now that group is part of Durham Regatta, a company limited by guarantee. Company number 07479131. Registered in England.
Competitors and the general public will (hopefully) see very little difference but it is a fact of life today that many bodies require that they interact with a legal company entity rather than a committee of like minded individuals.
We can now get back to what we do best and concentrate on organising the 2011 regatta. Roll on June!
