On Water Training

On Water have Trained Row4Victory in RYA First Aid, Sea Survival and accomodated the boat at Hartlepool Marina during their training as our way of saying Thank you and we will never forget this Remembrance Sunday.

Good Luck Lads from all of us in the North East
We are right behind you!Remembrance Day;

Row4Victory was inspired by the Dig for Victory campaign in World War Two which saw Britain’s civilian population pull together with true grit and do their part in the war effort.

Having current and former members representing all three branches of the UK armed forces and the civilians they serve this Sundays service has been in the forefront of our minds throughout the campaign. With veterans of both the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts on the team we have seen the loss and injury of friends and comrades, this weekend we will remember them and the millions that came before them.

It was the obvious choice to support two amazing military charities during our campaign; Royal British Legion and Soldier On and we are all very proud to do so.
