In May 2016 the Club was awarded a £10,000 grant from Sport England towards the purchase of a Harker’s Yard Gig as part of a Coastal Rowing project to “expand participation through supporting formal, organised “Club” coastal rowing to provide low cost, open access opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to get involved in rowing and keep rowing”. The Rose Family have also donated additional funding to the Club for the rowing project in memory of Bill Rose for whom the Gig is named.
The Sport England Funded project ran from 1 June 2016 to 31 May 2017.
We kept a Club Rowing log for the year long project with details and pictures of from all the Club Rows and Races over the year. The log aims to show the fun and activity beyond the numbers. A PDF version of the log is available below.
Further details of the implementation of the Coastal Rowing Project can be found in our update report:
