Tamesis Club

Summer Camp 2019

The first day of the summer camp dawned bright, and became more breezy as the day went on.  Twelve children are participating in our Summer Camp led by Senior RYA Instructor Ben Kimbell  – photos below.

The week continued with mixed weather – rain, half a gale, flat calm, but none of these made even a small dent in the success of the week.

The kids had a great time – sailing on the water, swimming in the water, playing football and generally learning a lot and making new friends.

The climax of the week was a stayover on Thursday night on the the River Thames Boat Project’ Thames Venturer.

The week ended on Friday afternoon with a presentation of medallions to all the children, and presentation to some who made a special mark of Tammy caps.

Huge huge huge thanks go to Tim Medcalf for organisation, RYA Senior Instructor Ben Kimbell, Dinghy Instructor Ben Ramage, and Assistant Instructor Alden Horwitz for running the week, and last but definitely not least all the volunteers who opened the club, provided back up patrol boat, fed the kids on Friday morning, and generally made the whole week viable and fun.
