The week-long “Battle of Medway” event, on 8-17 June 2017, will incorporate the annual River Festival, and will culminate in a “Medway in Flames” spectacle. Hundreds of boats are expected to come from Holland where the 1667 Dutch Raid is better known as the Battle of Chatham. If your club can offer moorings or hospitality to our Dutch visitors, who will be on their best behaviour, please contact Ed Woollard at Medway Council. Email email@example.com
