Maldon: Crowds gather for pirate-themed Row 4a Reason event
8:20am Monday 9th September 2013 in Local News
Pirates invaded the Blackwater Estuary as the annual Row 4a Reason event returned to Heybridge Basin.
About 80 people, many in fancy dress, rowed their boats around Northey Island and back during Saturday’s Pirates of the Blackwater-themed race.
As always, the event was run in aid of charity, with Guide Dogs for the Blind, Bipolar UK’s Maldon group and Life Education this year’s beneficiaries.
As well as the main spectacle, which drew a huge crowd of cheering spectators, there were also craft and market stalls, games, live music and a beer and sausage festival.
