Carnival Row 2016

August 3, 2016



As part of the Swanage Regatta & Carnival week SSRC again invited a cross section of the community to take a crash course in gig rowing culminating in a fun racing evening from the main beach. Some of the teams we hosted this year included Boots, the Purbeck Runners, Swanage Cricket Club and local trades people and businesses from across Purbeck. The racing pulled in a high number of spectators all lining the seafront to cheer the crews on.
