Social Rowing

Here you will find info about some of our previous rowing events both social and racing.

 

Steak on Stones Rally

Our 2015 rally to Stoke Gabriel was a steak on stones rally with 26 of us heading up river in various forms of craft. We safely arrived at the pontoon at Stoke G after a challenging row against the wind….however the tide was in our favour but due to wind over tide created a challenging set of conditions. Well done all the rowers including Neil Baxter whio rowed his delightful skiff. We all enjoyed a lovely meal provided by the River Shack.

Sharpham Picnic Row

Saturday 27th June 2015

A very enjoyable afternoon picnic at south quay Sharpham 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.

This regular social row has proved to be a very popular event.

Our Rally to Tuckenhay up Bow Creek to the Maltsters  was on Sunday 9th August 2015 the day after Dittisham Regatta, HW Dartmouth was at 14.24 so we left Darthaven at 12.15. Great fun!

 

Galmpton Fish & Chips Rows 2014 & 2015

A number of club members enjoyed a row up to Galmpton for a fish and chips supper on the green by the slipway. 2015 was our second Galmpton visit and we are looking forward to perhaps having one in 2016. What our events page for details.

Galmpton 4

For those of you who have never been to Dartside Quay, there’s a small green with seating and a fantastic view across the water to Dittisham over a mile away. Perfect for a fish and chips supper! See our events page for future rally dates.

Racing

 

The Head of the Dart Race

This race is held in April each year. The 2015 race was held on the 11th April and was raced  down stream from Totnes to Dartmouth. One team from KRC  entered in 2015 and achieved a very respectable finishing time.
