On Sunday the 15th of November, La Chaloupe will be taken to Franklin to participate in a mini regatta which will see rowing skiffs take on 4 steam powered vessels.
It is an early start of 9am on the day so let the coordinator know if you would like to have a row and take on the steam boats. It should be fun for all and no one need get too serious about how they row. The idea is to have a go and participate in this great activity and venue.
Race starts at 9am at the Living Boat Trust wharf.
On Saturday the 28th of November, The Swiftsure Regatta will be held at the Living Boat Trust.
Adult races will be in the afternoon, so get your name on a seat on La Chaloupe for the round the island race.
It should take about 1 hour to complete the race. We came in second last year and hope to do better this year, subject to the handicapper. We did have two expert rowers on board that day but we also carried three passengers.
