Carrow Cup

Christmas - Bah Humbug!

The Carrow Cup Race, now in its 203rd year, will be held on the River Wensum in Norwich on 10th December 2016. For the 6th year Norwich Rowing Club has invited traditional rowers to bring their skiffs, galleys and gigs to the event. The traditional boats will muster at Pull's Ferry, in the shadow of Norwich Cathedral, at 11.30 a.m.

 Entries to:- Harry Scott, C/O Carrow Cup Entries, Ravensmere House, Ravensmere, Beccles NR34 9DZ or by phone 01502 713589 email: 
Entries Close 6pm Saturday 3rd December 2016 
Cost £11 a seat if paid before race day and £12 on the day 
Cheques payable to Norwich Rowing Club 

Lower Thames Rowing Club will be bringing 5 boats to defend their successes in 2014 and 2015, and  the Norfolk clubs will be there to give them a run for their money. Both King's Lynn and Blakeney will be sending St Ayles Skiffs and The Norfolk Skiff Club will field a skiff and a Norwegian Faering.

There's still time to register and I hope that the other clubs from this region and elsewhere will make the journey to Norwich for this traditional start (if you are a rower!) to the Christmas season.
