Deptford’s AHOY Centre opens registration for 23-mile row challenge across the English Channel

Do you feel like challenging yourself in 2020?

If so Deptford’s AHOY Centre has opened registration for a huge rowing challenge – and is looking for willing teams to get involved.

The Channel Row Challenge – a 23-mile row across the English Channel to the International Separation Zone and returning to Dover Marina, is a true test of team work as you row together, navigating your way across open waters through the busiest shipping lanes in the world.

The AHOY Centre is a charity based in Deptford, providing disadvantaged, at-risk youths and disabled people with opportunities and training through the medium of sailing, rowing and water-sport activities.

Opportunities extend from apprenticeships in activity leadership, RYA sailing courses, along with land-based activities such as after-school clubs – all of which builds life skills, self-confidence and
team – building and help with finding later employment.

You could be a part of this challenge of a lifetime, all you need to do is enquire online at or email
