|Saturday 15th Dec.|
had a Scratch Regatta with 3 quads (with a few people changing over for
the second race) competing against each other over 500m. Apart from
being cold, the weather held out and we all had a very enjoyable
morning and good racing. A few crabs were caught during racing and some
steering problems were experienced, but nobody fell in and we all
finished the races. Andy's crew managed to win both races, even
after the cox changed with a crew member.
The Veterans ("the old
one") - Andy, Martin, Ian and Eva - were challenged by the
juniors for a race, which had a close finish, but the juniors had the
edge and won!
|Well done - the "vets" will get you next time!|
Afterwards we were all rewarded by delicious soup and home made bread and lots of home baking!
