Rule Britannia, Britannia Waives the Rules….
Britannia waives the rules…
On board Just George
They’ve been ‘Oared’!!!
We had a fantastic day on Saturday 28th December at the annual sponsored row for the RNLI organised by John Rodgers of the Maldon Little Ship Club (mlsc.org.uk).
It wasn’t too cold and very calm water. It was great to see the event so well attended and supported. This year the BBC sent a camera man and reporter and there was a very brief mention on Look East. As usual, we made a loud and colourful entrance! This year’s theme was Britannia and her take on BREXIT!!!
We are extremely proud to have retained the Panther Trophy for the most money raised by a single boat, virtually all thanks to the supporters of the 200 Club we run, raising funds for the Maldon branch of the RNLI. This year we raised over £4,500.
We were the first multiple ladies rowing boat home and third in the fancy dress.
Thank you everyone, again and a Happy New Year to you from Annette, Brenda, Chrys, Jill and Marion
