Maldon Little Ship Sponsored Row December 2019


Rule Britannia, Britannia Waives the Rules….

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 (

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
