Corsairs Fundraiser, Social and Oar Dedication (with novice row before)
Sat 1 April 2017, 18:00 – 22:00 BST
Ever wanted to row for the Corsairs? Or do you just want to have fun? Perhaps both??
The club is having a fundraiser and very special oar dedication ceremony on 1 April from 6pm.
At high tide, from 4pm there will be the chance for new rowers or anyone who is interested, in having a go on the boat; either a lazy paddle to the Roman River, or a race start from between the flood barrier! Come and join us for fun, dancing, socialising and perhaps a drink or two...
Who are the Corsairs?
We are a Community Gig Rowing Club from Wivenhoe. We row Defiance, socially and in races throughout the year. Members of all shapes and colours are more than welcome. Come to the party and ask one of the members how to join.
If you need to ask, you probably don't want to come to our party, however if you would still like to support us, you are very welcome!
What do I need for the social row from 1600hrs?
Not much, wear loose clothes, flat shoes (trainers are fine NOT high heels). If you are nervous about anything before or during the row, just ask one of the experienced crew who will be coxing or rowing with you.
What's with the oar dedication?
Five members of our club sponsored the four oars and the rudder to help the club raise funds last year. In return, Defiance's oars and her rudder have been named in memoriam of those chosen by their sponsors.
Who can I call for more information?
