About the Event: 
This is an easy three-mile walk along the flat tidal marshes from Winchelsea to Rye, East Sussex. It starts at the planned medieval town of Winchelsea, then passes through Camber Castle and the Castle Water Nature Reserve to end up at Rye for lunch at the The Globe Inn Marsh. Afterwards, walkers are free to wander around Rye's antique shops, bric-a-brac peddlers, and cafes. Escape with fellow Yalies to explore 'this stylish cobbled citadel' and its history--a sanctuary for Ethelred the Unready, ceded to France from 1205 to 1247, and a haven for smugglers. As usual, check the forecast and wear sensible walking shoes.
