Have a good week ahead everyone.
Due to a forecast of high winds, there will be no rowing tomorrow. This includes the youth and adult training sessions in the morning, as well as social rowing at 1pm.
Sunday: For anyone wondering how bad it really is at Port Edgar, considering it was quite calm earlier:
The dinghy sailors had a brief, very wild ride before capsizing and being towed back to safety. It was really cold too! White horses everywhere, surf breaking in the marina. Definitely a good call last night.
An oar broke during the men’s 60+ training session today. There’s a spare, so the chaps were able to carry on after a return to base. The women’s 60+ crew were also out on the water, and may have found a second spare….
Not quite 45ft long like the last tree found in the Firth, so Maria reached out and grabbed it and brought it aboard. It was floating in the harbour, quite a hazard.
The temperature may have been hovering around zero today, but the still air and bright sunshine made it a perfect day for a row. And the crew that went out found themselves a unique way to keep warm! Photos by Mike McDowall.
Keith writes: Much praise for this afternoon’s “Social Row”!! As well as transporting a passenger, we managed to tow a FORTY FIVE FOOT WATERLOGGED TREE from the middle of the shipping lane to a small beach just west of NQ slipway – taking about 45mns of extreme rowing.
Rachel adds: Well done indeed the crew, I have it listed in the ‘Green Flag Notebook’.
A reminder about QRC’s Green Flag effort this year.
