HCC at Faversham Nautical Festival 2017

This year’s Faversham Nautical Festival on July 22 and 23 was another success for the organisers, and the Hollowshore CC stand on the Front Brents attracted a good number of visitors.

On the creek itself there was a colourful array of traditional craft. Abbey School youngsters launched their 16ft Julie skiffs designed by HCC member Gavin Atkin and built at a “boatcamp” led by another member, local boatbuilder Alan Thorne and assistant Malcolm Hazleton at the Faversham Creek Trust’s Purifier building.
