Launching Ouse Rewet

The Launch Day held on 30 April 2016 was a great success, enhanced by some lovely weather which made a welcome contrast to the launch of Lynn Rewet a year ago. Ouse Rewet was launched with due ceremony; the launch itself was preceded by speeches from our MP, Sir Henry Bellingham and the Mayor of King’s Lynn, Councillor Colin Manning, The skiff was then formally christened Ouse Rewet by the Lady Mayoress Julie Manning with a bottle of a Beeston Brewery beer “On The Huh”. KLCRC had also launched Lynn Rewet and our safety RIB and the day was very well supported by the Blakeney club ,The CRABS, who not only launched their 2 skiffs but also helped to man the safety RIB. All 4 skiffs then rowed the Ouse for 30 minutes and once boats were secure the rowers and supporters retired to the Ouse Amateur Sailing Club (OASC) for a sandwich lunch. the OASC and the CRABS have our grateful thanks for their support and helping to make our Launch Day a success.
