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 return 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.
We have the approval of the Chichester Conservancy to hold this event and to land with our boats.
All Crews must have a competent cox and crew members will need to satisfy their appointed competent cox of their ability to row in the prevailing conditions on the day.
One way rowing will only be considered where the replacement rower is of a sufficient standard .
Last year we found that the crews returning from Wittering were not maintained to the strength of the outgoing crews.
Having said all that, its a great social event and we always have fun
We will take whatever gigs we have available at the time and we will need competent 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.
