Time To Order The British Rowing Almanack

Now when April is upon us, it’s high time to order your copy of the British Rowing Almanack, which came out for the first time 137 years ago, in 1861! For the 2011 edition, this old publication, which of course is published by British Rowing, has a brand new editor, Maggie Phillips. The former editor, Keith Osborne, had been the editor for half a century - yes, an amazing 50 years! However, Osborne is not giving up being involved with the Almanack. In November last year he published an index of all the previous published Almanacks. This is an enormous help for rowing historians.

For more information about the 2011 edition of the British Rowing Almanack and how to order it, please click here. To order Osborne's Index for the Almanack, click here.

Of course, the Almanack is not the only publication Keith Osborne has published. He has also written, to mention a few, Boat Racing in Britain 1715-1975 (1975), One Man Went to Row (1998), and 1000 Years of Rowing on The Dee (2003).
