Although the Club’s activities on the water are mainly concerned with cruising we also run a very popular and successful Autumn racing series and Gala. These races attract not only boats from the Club but also from other clubs on the river and cater for both cruisers and gaffers.  The racing is friendly but competitive and a number of trophies are awarded to the winners. The post-racing BBQs and refreshments are a popular part of the Gala

Gala 2022
