Last row to How Hill…

Our 2015/2016 winter season on the tranquil waters of Barton Broad draws to a close. Our thanks to Cox’s Boatyard for having us and to all the wildlife that came to see what we were doing. On this last day, the Marsh Harrier gave us a close inspection along the river Ant, then checked us back to the marina approach and our slipway.

We tried different configurations of oars – bow and 2 together and 3 and stroke etc. – plus honing our technique for buoy rounding. No photos sadly, as clearly top secret.

The usual resting spot at How Hill we can show…

The pattern of oars here gives nothing away…

On just a very brief count of those who have rowed at Barton since November, I see more than 30 names who have had at least one outing there this winter.

But for now, it’s back to the salty stuff. Hoi Larntan has re-joined her sister Bluejacket back on the Carnser at Blakeney ready for the season ahead.

Happy Easter to all.
