Maldon Little Ship Club Sponsored Row

Sponsored row and gig race for the RNLI.

This rowing spectacular organised annually by Maldon Little Ship Club will take place on Saturday 20th Jan and provide entertainment for all the family.

The start from the Viking Saga “river cruise” jetty is best viewed from Maldon Prom Park and the Blackwater will look at its best with a high spring tide and over 50 craft on the water.

These will range from stand up paddle boards and kayaks to dinghies and large four man rowing gigs which do a longer course down river before returning to finish at the prom.

Many crews will be in fancy dress and the fleet will be supported by escort boats from Blackwater Sailing Club and Sea cadets.

The West Mersea lifeboat should be present and the steam launch Sea Otter usually graces the river for this nautical charity event.

Please support the “Row Race” as it is affectionately called; it is a good excuse for the family to have a brisk winter’s walk along Maldon’s Prom Park whilst watching some spectacular entertainment on the river!

At the same time you will have an opportunity to contribute to the RNLI whose lifeboats and lifeguards keep our shores and estuaries safe for all to enjoy.
