Rowing club is a splashing success
Amble Coastal Rowing Club is going from strength to strength.
A report to the town’s recent parish meeting read: ‘The last 12 months has seen the club grow in membership – covering a real mix of age groups and abilities – as well as grow in activity and community involvement with many miles rowed, new friendships made and continued involvement in the town.’
Highlights have included appearing in a CBeebies episode, which was shot in Amble and telling the story of Grace Darling, and launching the club’s second skiff, Coquet Venture, on Easter Saturday.
A regatta is set to be held at this year’s puffin festival, which will hopefully see a flotilla of boats rowing to Coquet Island. Visit amblecoastalrowingclub.co.uk
