Social rowing 25-27 June

Mike B writes: The times for social rowing next week are fairly constricted I am afraid.

The earliest evening row next week will be on Friday the 25th of June and there is only enough water for one rowing slot. The Saturday social rowing can’t begin until 12:00.

The slots for next week are:

Friday the 25th of June:
18:00 – 20:00, General rowers, Ferry Maid
Saturday the 26th of June:
12:00 – 14:00, Limited Exposure rowers, Ferry Maid;
12:45 – 14:45, Shielding rowers, Ferry Lass;
15:45 – 17:45, General rowers, Ferry Maid
Sunday the 27th of June:
13:00 – 15:00, Youth rowing, Ferry Maid;
13:45 – 15:45, General rowers, Ferry Lass;
16:00 – 18:00, Limited Exposure rowers, Ferry Maid;
16:45 – 18:45, Shielding rowers, Ferry Lass.

I am sorry that these times are a bit awkward – but the following week the tides are much better for our normal evening and weekend rowing, so something to look forward to.
