Row 4a Reason

Thank you to everyone who came down to the Basin on Saturday 7th September for Row 4a Reason.

This year’s theme was Heybridge Basin Pirates of the Blackwater. The race was the usual course around Northey Island and in aid of the following charities being supported by Row 4a Reason: Guide Dogs for the Blind, Bipolar UK and Life Education.

We had a good row despite some tricky weather and very strong winds on the far side of Northey making progress through the water very slow and challenging. However, we made it!

We enjoyed having the excuse to dust off our pirate outfits we wore when we took part in the Great River Race on the Thames in 2009. Here are a few pictures from that race, which bring back memories of a terrific day messing about on the river, all done in the best possible taste as ever!
