The Moon Row
The moon row is approx 14 Miles – we may go further. It starts at 10pm till 2am ish setting off from NGRC clubhouse.
This is an idea that we are growing, along the lines of Walk the Walk for Breast Cancer.
The idea is to row in bras – men and women – from Newhaven, beyond Lewes and back, to raise money. We would like other clubs to come and join us and help raise money for breast cancer.
We want all forms of rowing boats, kayaks, canoes to join us. To register interest please email [email protected]

Newhaven Gig Regatta
Waterbourne is our regatta on Saturday 25th August. This is invite only but you can register interest for a space at [email protected]
We plan to have 15 boats competing so please email [email protected] to register interest for 2019.
There will be two races:
1) Novice Race: from Newhaven harbour to Southease. This race will begin at 11am and boats will need to be getting in the water and lined up to start from 10:30am (coxes briefing will be at 10am). Each boat must be fixed seat and have a cox. A passenger may be taken in the boat and can swap during the race. This will have a rolling start and be a processional race with about 60secs between each boat. No restrictions on age or gender – pick your crew as you like.
2) Intermediate Race: from Southease to Seaford bay, around a bouy and back into finish in Newhaven Harbour. This race will begin at 1:00 and boats will need to be getting in the water and lined up to start from the 12:30 (coxes briefing will be at 12 midday). Each boat must be fixed seat and have a cox. A passenger may be taken in the boat and can swap during the race. Coxes and passengers must wear life jackets/buoyancy aids for the race, as the last part is in open sea. This will have a rolling start with 60secs between boats. All who start must finish in the boat.
Scratch crews: no restrictions on age or gender – pick your crew as you like.
Between races there will be food and a social at Southease. Feel free to bring a picnic and enjoy the spectacle and congratulate those getting off the water and wish those about to race a fair wind!!!
