Every year rowing teams from across the country descend on Southsea seafront for a day of racing. Crowing glory is to win the Portsmouth Grand trophy, normally looked after by the Mayor of Portsmouth, but released for the weekend to presented to the winners of the Men’s Senior Four. Racing takes place between Southsea Beach Cafe and the Yomper statue aside Marine Barracks in Eastney.
We combined a mix of aerial videography and photography with ground view photography, adding the footage to our social media feeds to create some awareness of the racing amongst the local community.
We love supporting local events and organisations. This was a great way to showcase the activities of Southsea Rowing Club, and at the same time show off our beautiful home city waterfront to a larger global audience.
