Established in 1921, based at Newquay Harbour, NRC provides Newquay and the surrounding area with recreational and social opportunities.

Regular social and charity events are organised throughout the year (not just the rowing season), when friends old and new get together.

Please see details of their bid at One Family and give them your vote.

Please don't delay. They need your vote now.
