Bembridge Rowing Festival 24th/25th Sept - not enough interest
This post was updated on .
We have received an invitation to attend a rowing weekend in Bembridge on 24th/25th September. The event is for Gigs, Galleys and all types of traditional fixed seat rowing boats and is being organised by Bembridge Harbour Authority and Yarmouth Rowing Club. Last year was their first event and it was small due to Covid but a big success. Bembridge harbour is a beautiful place to row and it would be lovely to be part of this year's festival!
There are short 2km races planned for the Saturday and a longer race around St Helen's fort on the Sunday. Here is a link to the map showing both courses.
There is a lot more information here including accommodation and camping details .....

Ideally we would row the boats over on Friday and back on Sunday accompanied by other local clubs.
Please post if you are interested and if so whether you are available Friday, Saturday, Sunday or any combination of these!
