Annual Spring Bank Holiday Monday 29th May , Kite Flying Picnic and Games at the Witterings.
This post was updated on .
Subject to the wheather , We will be making our way down to The Hinge at Wittering for A day of fun and games, Tug O War , sack races , rounders three legged races all members and families are welcome to participate . Some by rowing to and from the event , others by driving down to the main public car park at Wittering . High tide is at 3 pm so we can teturn on the incoming tide .
It is anticipated that we will leave from Northney Marina at 10.00 am to arrive at around 11am to enjoy the sandy beach.
Mike Gilbert has kindly agreed to accompany the row with a safety rib . So radios need to be on board each boat tuned to channel 8.
We have the approval of the Chichester Conservancy to hold this event and to land with our boats.
All Crews must have a competant cox and crew members will need to satisfy their appointed competant cox of their ability to row in the prevailing conditions on the day.
One way rowing will only be considered where the repacement rower is of a sufficient standard .
Last year we found that the crews returning from Wittering were not maintained to the stength of the outgoing crews.
Having said all that, its a great social event and we allways have fun
We will take whatever gigs we have available at the time and we will need competant cox trainers please to come forward, along with potential rowers and drivers able to take passengers and kit to Wittering.
We have invited the cutters rowing club to join us as in previous years.
