Launching Shalloway

We are excited to launch the Shalloways on Friday, June 12th at 11:30am from the foot of ship cove pond in Port de Grave.  When launched you will be able to observe one of the Shalloways sculled and the other rowed to the recently upgraded dock in the middle of the pond.

These Shalloways have been generously sponsored by Clarence and Eleanor Andrews and Shawn and Nancy Batten.

We welcome you to come out and observe a short ceremony as we unveil the names chosen for the boats.  Rev. Linda Budden will offer a blessing for a safe venture and a successful way of remembering out past as we build a tourism destination.

If you come down, please ensure you follow social distancing.  You can always stay in your vehicle or watch from across the pond.

NTV have confirmed they will be onsite and will bring a report on the Evening Newshour.

Remember Social Distancing will be strongly inforced.
