It's all about the Medway Marathon! Great especially if the breeze is from
the right direction.

By a brilliant piece of mutual planning - not- the Nore and Medway Marathon races clash this year on 20th June.

Two great, classic races, but the competitors in one will actually be able to see those in the other at some point...

Its just 24 hours to the South Kent Race at Wilsonian Sailing Club - not a very long race but from the Medway Towns to the mouth of the Medway and back, its not short anyway.  In June the same club hosts the Wilsonian Grand Prix which is a long race weather permitting.  And just a week before that many of the Wilsonian SC boats will be doing the Medway Marathon from MYC which is marathon length.  So it seems the Medway is a good area for long distance races.
