Kymin Adrift – September 2014

Fresh from the success of the RNLI Mumbles Raft Race last month, the team is now planning to spread the word about beach litter on Gower further inland and up river to Monmouthshire.

The 49th annual Monmouth Raft Race is playing host to up to 100 vessels competing for 1st place, starting at the Rowing Club and meandering downriver along a 6-mile stretch of the River Wye.

Litter Lout has been re-modeled and now has a new name with a local twist, Kymin Adrift. For those interested in a little local National Trust knowledge, to quote the National Trust website, “Standing proudly atop a prominent hill, the Kymin and its nine acres of pleasure grounds, overlooks Monmouth and the beautiful Wye Valley. Once part of the enormous Monmouthshire estate of the Dukes of Beaufort, the Kymin’s fortunes have fluctuated over the last two centuries.”

The race will start at Monmouth Rowing Club at 12 noon on Sunday 7th September and finishes at Whitebrook 6 miles downriver. The NT team is hoping that the fantastic NT supporters will come along and cheer them at the riverside.
