Round Canvey Island

posted 23 Jul 2017, 01:12 by Chris Partridge

Our very fine team of Steve W, Al H, Dave & Jenny, Wendy and I rowed 14 miles around Canvey Island on the 8th July and we were the 5th boat over the line out of a field of 28 boats in a very impressive 2 hours and 30 minutes. We also came 5th in our class and were competing against some strong crews from Manningtree, Mersea Island, Lower Thames RC, Benfleet Yacht club and many others. Knowing the rivalvry between Manningtree and the Cutters, we saw off a strong challenge from their Claydon emphatically ensuring that they finished behind us despite them having done everything humanly possible to catch us.
