Thank you for your support over the past year.
This club raised £5,000 for the RNLI during 2016.
December 31st 2016, saw the 40th Maldon Little Ship Club Sponsored Row and Gig Race in aid of the RNLI. It was great to see so many people turn out to support everyone. Our fancy dress this year was a spoof on the Julie Walters’ sketch, Two Soups – ‘Ready to order , sir?’
We had great pleasure in handing over a cheque for £5,000 raised mostly from our RNLI 200 Club and wish to thank all members for your support. We had a very generous donation from a friend of £1,250 for the row which helped us retain the trophy for the most money raised by any one boat. Thank you Terry.
The last photo shows John Rogers receiving his winning cheque in the annual Extra Big Oars Draw, the major prize in the 200 Club. Congratulations, John.
If you’d like to join our 200 Club please contact us for details.

Oars and Paws Fun Dog Show 2016 A huge thank you to everyone who came and supported our village fun dog show on Saturday 11th June. It was a fantastic day with our best turn out, being our 13th show. The weather was kind with the rain holding off until after we had finished packing away.
We had 95 dogs entered with record entries for each class. Overall, with everyone’s support we raised £1,167 for Row4aReason.
Our best in Show for 2016 is Isabel Patten and Nico, a 7 month old Crossbreed.
Please see our Gallery page for more photos of the show.
Thanks to everyone who came along to Maldon Hythe Quay on Sunday 27th December to support this event and to cheer us on.
Fortunately, the strong winds we had been experiencing recently, abated for the race and it was a fairly smooth course. There was a great atmosphere being with so many rowing boats, kayaks, gigs and a paddle board on the water and to see so many spectators along the quay.
As usual we made a colourful splash with our ‘Strictly’ theme. Thanks to the support from the members of our RNLI 200 Club we handed over £3,750 and won the trophy for the boat which raised the most sponsorship. We were the first women’s multiple crew to finish and were runners’ up in the fancy dress competition.
It was heartening to see so many people supporting this race and we’d like to thank John and Diana Rogers from the Maldon Little Ship Club for organising it and all those who helped make the event so successful.
We’re also grateful to the West Mersea lifeboat crew who came along in ‘Just George’. We couldn’t resist the invitation to pose on the life boat – after all we did help to fund it!
Thanks to all who supported our fun dog show on Saturday 13th June!! It was a very successful day. A full report can be seen on the Oars and Paws page.

Thank you to everyone who came along to watch and cheer on the race on Saturday 26th September. We enjoyed near perfect weather conditions and had a great row round Northey Island.
This year our theme for Pirates of the Blackwater was the Pirates of Parliament and we had great fun deciding outfits with a play on different roles of office within Westminster which included a Spin Doctor, Permanent(ly) under Secretary in a State, Lord Privy Seal(t) and Chief Whip.
Row4aReason charities this year include MacMillan Cancer Support, Action for Family Carers and First Responders.
Our fun dog show in aid of ROW4AREASON was held on Saturday 13th June 2015 in Daisy Meadow, Heybridge Basin.
Despite the weather starting out damp we had a great turnout.
This is our 12th year of running the show and it’s grown in popularity year on year to become one our village’s established annual events with the sole intention for everyone to have fun! Its other main aim is to raise valuable funds for the annual sponsored rowing race around Northey Island, organised by Row4AReason, which is to be held on 25th September.
There was a strong crowd with 59 dogs which were entered into numerous classes totalling 194 entries.
The emphasis of this show is FUN for all the family, with child handlers being actively encouraged.
The judges this year were Carole and Keith Lawson and Peggy and Dave Howard.
During the interval the Burnham Collaborators Flyball Team gave an insight into this exciting sport.
The results were:
Best in Show – Charlotte Maynard and Reuben, Reserve Best in Show Master Wood and Tia.
Class 1 Prettiest Bitch – Madda and Mark Osbourne
Class 2 Most Handsome Dog – Archie and Diane Smith
Class 3 Most Appealling Eyes – Jarvis and Sue Wadwell
Class 4 Best Condition – Rueben and Charlotte Maynard
Class 5 Fastest Sausage Eater – Jambo and Daryl Flint
Class 6 K9 Kids – Harvey and Tadhg Leeson-King
Class 7 Perkiest Pensioner – Cookie and Vanessa Mallow
Class 8 Agility Stakes – Zebbie and Nina Gibson
Class 9 Dog Judges would most like to take home – Reuben – Charlotte Maynard
The amount we raised was just over £850.00!! The monies coming from entry fees for classes and the agility arena, the refreshment tent (hot dogs and home made cakes), home made dog biscuits and home made crafts. We also had two smaller competitions, Guess How Many Dog Biscuits in the jar and Name the Cuddly Toy. This a free entrance event and we’d like to thank those people who very kindly put donations into our bucket.
The team and all their loyal helpers, work so very hard for these few hours of fun. Heartfelt thanks to all.
Thanks to everyone who came down to Maldon Hythe Quay on Sunday 4th January to support the sponsored row. It was an early start with the race starting at 11.00 and we had a cold but very calm day. The conditions were so good that we finished the race in 25 minutes – the first ladies’ multiple team back! We were second in the fancy dress and won the trophy for the boat raising the most sponsor money. This is virtually all down to our RNLI 200 Club. We raised over £3,200 so thank you to all our members!
