Illuminating the past – Enhancing the present – Inspiring the future

Row, row, row the boat

On Sunday 10th August, weather permitting, an intrepid crew will attempt to paddle the replica boat between Folkestone  and Dover harbours. The crew has been in training at weekends for some weeks now and is gearing up for the 8 mile row in the open waters of the Channel, so everything is crossed in hope that fair weather and calm seas allow the challenge.

Good vantage points for viewing and cheering on will be Copt Point and Samphire Hoe and, of course, a welcoming party at Dover Harbour would be especially appreciated. It could be some celebration!

And there’s talk of entering the Great River Race, billed as London’s River Marathon, on Saturday 27th September!
