INVITATION TO DINGHY AND KEELBOAT SAILORS
The Medway Marathon has provided a yearly challenge for the dinghy and keelboat sailor for over half a century. Unfortunately interrupted last year the event will be held this year as part of the Great British Sailing Challenge. The 26 mile course takes competitor through the sweeping main estuary reaches of the Medway River and into the mysterious creeks bisecting marsh flats teeming with abundant birdlife.
