On 19th August Gravesend and Erith Rowing Clubs successfully brought back the Danson Dashes. After many years away this 500m sprint regatta returned as a private event with Lea, Globe, Medway and Maidstone invited to help us practice for a full fledged regatta open to all next year.

After a day of exciting racing, prizes were presented by Paralympic Gold Medallist (and world record holder) Naomi Riches who also brought along her London 2012 gold medal much to the excitement of many of our winners – you can see some of those from Gravesend below.  

Thanks to everyone who helped us make the day a success – we look forward to seeing you all on the 18th August 2018!
