Return journey to Ludham Bridge…

“A good row this morning, we arrived at How Hill in 35 minutes so decided to row on to Ludham, Bridge.

Taking it in turns to cox and occupy each of the four thwarts, we hardly noticed the time passing; sharing various anecdotes and “jokes” with varying degrees of amusement.  Only one thole pin was broken on the outing and this time we promised not to mention any names.  The new thole pins look very bright and clean.

We discussed the difficulty that we might experience during a race using the highly approved new oars, if we tried to rotate positions in transit.”

Put your backs into it…

Many thanks to Alan of the words and pictures – and the rest of the crew.

If you can spare a half hour this Saturday afternoon 27th. at Bayfield please, we need to lift Bluejacket back on to her trailer. I know some of our regulars can’t make it so please come if you can.

Many thanks to all of you who have helped with the sanding and painting over the past few weeks.
