Hanse Festival Kings Lynn…

Barry sends photos and words of this highly successful event – and the sun shone too!

“The main opposition was provided by the two King’s Lynn skiffs, but there were two or three local crafts of different kinds in each race. The event is one which has been restarted after many years absence. Its full title is “The King’s Lynn Hanseatic Royal Regatta” and planning will start shortly for next year’s event which, I’m told, will involve a maximum of ten rowing craft.

It’s hoped that more club members will want to participate in racing.”

Hopefully the first revival of what will again become an annual event.
