Worthing daredevils


I was bought up in Worthing on the Sussex coast so I was thrilled to read about the exploits of Worthing boys Jake Scrace and Lewis Crathern who used yesterday’s stormy weather to jump over Worthing Pier on kite surfers. Stupid but magnificent. When I was their age I was doing coastal rowing based at Splash Point just east of the pier. Not quite so glamorous but equally wet and cold.

See the BBC’s video here.

Not sure I understand this comment. Adur river to east of Worthing coming out at Shoreham. It is rowable at the bottom where Shoreham rowing club runs an event called the Adur Head but I don’t think you were talking about rowing George.



Rowing up to Bramber was place for reflection on the balance in life rather than conflict.

You should try it in a whaler.
