This girl can…push the boat out!

In conjunction with Blakeney Sailing Club, Saturday and Sunday 28/29 May will see our St. Ayles skiffs available for you to come and have a row. This is part of two initiatives from the Royal Yachting Association (RYA) and Sport England to give anyone a chance to try sailing, rowing and other watersports – and, in particular, to encourage girls and women to get more involved with active sports.


If you are 18 years and over and would like to try rowing in one of the CRAB skiffs, do come along, join in the fun and help Push The Boat Out.  To row on Saturday you will need to be at the slipway by the dinghy park at ten o’clock (till twelve o’clock) and on Sunday at eleven o’clock (till one o’clock – because of tides).   Experienced and trained rowers will be there to support and help you get the most out of the day.

For safety sake, CRAB asks that you are able to swim 50 meters and that your doctor would not advise you against rowing.  Then all you need to do is turn up wearing appropriate clothes for the weather on the day (your feet/footwear will get wet), perhaps some cycling gloves would be a good idea.  Don’t forget to bring your sense of humour!

It would help CRAB plan if you contact, in advance:

Refreshments will be available.
