Blakeney Rowing Club has announced some of their latest events, and are inviting people to join in or go along to support their local team.

Their next major event will be the morston Regatta on August 18. The race, beginning at 9.30am, will see boats race towards Blakeney Point.

The second will be the Wells to Blakeney Row, taking place on September 1.

Teams from Blakeney, King's Lynn and Essex will row the narrow channel between the two towns, a test for the boats in rowing and coding skills.

The Blakeney Regatta will be held just a day later, where all of the local club's teams will compete to make it to Blakeney Point.

Following that will be the Thames Great River Race on September 8, with boats racing from the Isle of Dogs to Richmond, a 22 mile stint.

The north Norfolk team will be competing against around 300 boats.
