This is to give advanced notice of an excursion row on Sat 28th March. I will re-post nearer the time for people to sign up . This is an opportunity for you to get the details in your diary. As ever, this is all subject to the weather on the day:-
Emsworth Slipper Sailing Club, are keen to possibly start a rowing sub section. Joining the likes of Itchenor, Bosham, Del Quay, Tudor and Eastney Cruisings as local sailing clubs that have done the same.
The plan will be as follows:-
Meet at Langstone at 11:30
Prepare boats for departure before 12:00 and row to Emsworth
On arrival at Emsworth, we will take Slipper Members out to experience fixed-seat rowing. Some LCRC members can enjoy the bar and meals over the lunch time at The Slipper, some can help with coxing and rowing with our hosts. Then we can swap round before departing for Langstone at 15:00. If we have more interest than boats available, some could also travel by land to Emsworth and participate.
Ideally, it would be good to have at least two boats of one class to permit some competitive rowing.
Tidal details are HW 13:59 4.5 Mtrs
