Five go rowing mad in Norfolk.


Elettra’s Wells-next-the Sea to Blakeney adventure row.

Gig Elettra flew the MSC flag & joined other gigs & kayaks from Norfolk Coastal Rowing Association Blakeney (CRAB) in an adventure row from Wells-next-the-Sea to Blakeney on the north Norfolk coast this week. The route traversed the marsh channels, emerging behind West Sands west of Blakeney point via the National Trust’s old Lifeboat station for refreshments before continuing to Blakeney for bacon butties. Thanks to Victoria and all of CRAB for making us so welcome!

You can see a short movie and images of our rowers exploits  below:
