Why Jemima?

The last time Britain was invaded happened on 22nd  February 1797 when fourteen hundred members of the French Revolutionary Army landed in Carregwastad bay near Fishguard.

 

The French moved inland the following morning and occupied strong defensive positions on high rocky ground. The British, although outnumbered, decided to attack, with many Fishguard locals volunteering to fight. Notable among these was Jemima Nicholas who single-handedly took twelve French soldiers prisoner in St Mary’s Church armed only with a pitchfork……….and that’s why we’re called Jemima!

Indoor rowing

 

We purchased four Concept 2 machines in 2020 and these can be used by members throughout the year.

 

Some members use them as a winter activity when they can’t get on the water and some use them to maintain their fitness levels during the season.

They have been used in “Virtual indoor rowing competitions” and can be a sociable way to keep fit.

BOOKING EQUIPMENT

Whether you would like to go out in a boat or use one of our rowing machines, book your place by using the link below.

If you would like to use a boat, we ask that you assemble a crew and one person (the ‘Designated Leader’) books the boat, using the crew name and inserting their name in the notes section of the booking.

Please feel free to contact a committee member if you would like to go out but can’t form a crew.
