Port Fonty Days:
These are usually Sundays, when a few members get together at the boat house and have an outing on the river, returning for a picnic lunch. The Society boats are used and those of members who are there. It is a good opportunity for members without boats to come along and join a crew – if you are not very experienced there will always be someone to coach you. You need to inform Jolyon ( if you intend to come along as getting crews organised is essential for a reasonable departure time!

Work Party for the Thames Traditional Boat Festival at Henley: we have to transport all our chairs, tables and the marquee to the site and erect the tentage etc.

The tent needs a member(s) in attendance the whole time to encourage visitors to take an interest in our activities. It is a good opportunity to meet other members and take part in a row past. If you haven’t visited the show recently there are all manner of other interesting things to see.
