Welcome to The Newark Crusader – River Trips
The Newark Crusader is a 60ft boat that has been taking disabled, elderly and disadvantaged groups of people from the East Midlands on river cruises since the 1990’s. It’s popularity has always been growing until it had to cease running trips due to funding.
The Newark Crusader CIO as it is now known is back and operational as a charity set up by Mr James Wilkinson, of Newark Marina and his friend and businessman Mr John Coles. The Boat is skippered by Mr Les Reid with the help of volunteers from the surrounding community. Are you a boater with experience and would like to join us or would you like to join us as crew–we all get satisfaction helping our passengers have an enjoyable trip–use the contact us page and we will call you back and arrange to show you the “ropes”.
They are all looking forward to welcoming you on board.
