Rowing Resumes

Our first launch since lockdown!

On Sunday 08/08/21 we launched Bebside. It was fantastic to be back on the water.

According to Peter "I believe the last time I rowed was Sunday 2nd February 20. The following weekend storm Ciara was here with heavy rain and high winds. So at 14:35 this afternoon my oar struck water for the first time in 18 months."

Many thanks to Andy for organising, Elsie for coxing and to the rest of the crew. It was also great that we could fill the passenger seat - my favourite seat in the boat!

Plans are also being made to launch on Saturday 14th of August 2021 to support an event being organised by the Old Gaffers Association.
