Tour Norfolk 11 to 15 August 2014, Race Norfolk 16/17 August 2014

CRA Blakeney have issued an invitation to all St Ayles skiff groups to join them on a rowing tour of the North Norfolk Broads in August 2014 and for their regatta at Blakeney on 16 and 17 August 2014


For the tour camping accommodation has been booked at Barton Turf Adventure Centre for anyone wanting to camp in their own tent, or ready equipped tents can be hired. There will also be limited space for caravans and campers. There is plenty of B&B and hotel accommodation available in the area for those not wishing to camp.

A programme of events is planned involving picnics, social events and friendly competition.  The tour will explore the rivers Ant, Bure and Thurne and Barton and Hickling Broads.  It will be suitable for four oared skiffs, gigs, and sculled boats.  Secure overnight mooring will be provided.  It may be possible to include non-rowing members of groups, if space allows.

Blakeney Regatta will be held on the subsequent weekend (16-17th August), so it will be possible to complete your visit to Norfolk with racing on Blakeney Harbour. More information about the regatta will be available later.  If you, or your club are interested in taking part please contact Adrian Hodge: (01362 668847)
