More Fun Afloat.

Looking out this morning at a very sunny blue sky got me thinking of more fun afloat. Last year we enjoyed a number of trips up river in various craft including rowning boats, ribs and launches to the Ferry Boat Inn at Dittisham for “Rock on the beach”.

Dittisham Picnic Row
Here’s the dates for this years Rock on the Beach events.
Sunday 7th May.
Sunday 4th June.
Sunday 2nd July.
Sunday 6th August.

The fun tends to start round about 13.00hrs………with food available. We tend to congregate attached to a visitors mooring for a picnic afloat.
So plan ahead……….book a club boat or bring your own………..get a crew together……..pack a picnic………and enjoy the afternoon.

Keep an eye on the Ferry Boat Inn website for updates.

There were no rallies in 2016 but below is a sample of what we got up to on the water in 2015

Saturday 16th May. The Dittisham Picnic Rally planned for the 16th was canc due to the poor weather forecast and lack of support. Next year we will avoid the Music festival weekend.


Sun 31st May with HW at 17.40 This was the date set for our steak on stones rally to Stoke Gabriel. Blessed with a break in the weather  26 of us headed up to Stoke G by water in various craft including our 2 Seine boats plus Neil Baxster in his superb little skiff. We all arrived alongside the pontoon at Stoke G with those rowing experiencing a challenging trip. Well done rowers! On arrival we wre greeted at the River Shack where we all enjoyed a delicious meal.

If you missed out on this rally and would like to join us on a future club rally keep an eye on this events page along with our club facebook page.

Newfoundland Cove or Dittisham
Sat 6th June with LW at 15.10 was the date set for our first ever picnic rally to Newfoundland Cove however due to strong unfavourable south westerly winds we decided to head for Dittisham instead. We all rafted up on a visitors mooring and had a very enjoyable late picnic lunch. If you missed out on this rally please bear it in mind for next year as it’s sure to be in the programme again.

Sharpham Picnic Row

27th June with HW at 15.05 was the date set for another new club rally. This one is to south quay at Sharpham.  South Quay is located upstream from Stoke Gabriel and Dunncannon, so similar in distance to our row to Tuckenhay but as usual we made best use of the tide all the way there and back. The Sharpham Trustees kindly agreed to let us use south quay for a club picnic for a donation towards the Sharpham Trust. After a safety briefing we left Darthaven at approx 12.30. Boats were loaded with picnic rugs, picnics and suitable refreshments for the row and picnic.

A very enjoyable afternoon picnic with 16 KRC members and guests soaking up the sun and enjoying a delicious picnic. Amie plus Gertrude and 3 other boats joined in including Dennis and Gwen Royle with their delightful sailing dinghy. South Quay is certainly a lovely picnic location as long as the weathers good…..thankfully it was.
