Now our longest running event, the Windermere Row is one of the toughest but most enjoyable St Gemma’s Hospice challenges. The event has raised over £1.13 million since 1998. Teams of varying sizes (and abilities!) take to the lake come rain or shine and race their way past the checkpoints, and along either the 10 or 21 mile route to victory. Surrounded by the most beautiful setting, and with fancy dress and playful camaraderie strongly encouraged, this event has been attracting veteran captains and novice first mates to the lake for over 35 years.
Participation in this event is free and we would like you to aim to raise at least £100 in sponsorship. Numbers of boat sizes and boats per time slot are limited, be sure to get in fast to ensure your first choice!
So whether you see yourself as a potential commodore, or an abiding seafarer, come along and take on the lake this July and help St Gemma’s Hospice raise vital funds to help make our patient’s lives easier.
