St. Benet’s Abbey

Another windy day didn’t prevent today’s outing to St. Benet’s Abby going ahead: hard work on the outward leg, much of which was into the SW wind, especially across Barton Broad, but easier for much of the return leg, where we averaged 3.9 MPH with a peak of 5.2. Total trip was 11.8 miles, some 3 1/2 hours of rowing.

Tomorrow, back to oar making, second set to the new design are coming along, we’ll have matching oars in both boats for the coming season…..
