Row, Row, Row your boat………….
South Woodham Ferrers Yacht Club have a rowing section and has two large 27 foot long Spirit class rowing gigs.
Our first gig was named Spirit of Endeavour by Kath Peyton MBE in the summer of 2014.
We have since been successful in getting a Sport England Lottery grant to buy another gig named Spirit of Adventure, and were delighted to welcome the Mayor of Chelmsford on Saturday 10 January 2015 to perform the traditional naming ceremony.
Would you like to row with us ?
Anyone can join, regardless of age or gender and the Club and will waive the joining fee of £30 for those between 18-25 years old. For those members who don’t know how to row there is a free structured Club training scheme called ‘stepping stones’ of 4 modules of about 2 hours each module.
We try to have the boats out rowing at weekends and midweek evenings, whenever the tide serves.
If you want to join us call or email Rowing Captain Steve Rosie on 07866945517 email@example.com and we will be pleased to meet you
