The Portsmouth Pull 10km rowing challenge, watch this space for the confirmed date

The Portsmouth Pull is an exciting, challenging row around historic Portsmouth Harbour. Teams of 4-5 rowers navigate 23-ft wooden rowing skiffs past iconic landmarks including the Spinnaker Tower, Gunwharf Quays, HMS Warrior, Nelson’s flagship HMS Victory, the continental ferry port and the historic naval dockyard, home to the UK’s largest ever aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth. The teams then head towards the medieval Portchester Castle and Hardway, where troops embarked in 1944 heading for the D-Day landings, before passing back under Gosport’s Millennium Bridge for a sprint finish.
