Coming thick and fast…

After the howling gale and torrential rain last year at the launch of Kings Lynn’s first skiff Lynn Rewet, what a joy to arrive on Saturday to find bright, warm sunshine. Kings Lynn Coastal Rowing Club were launching their second boat – Ouse Rewet. Local MP and the Mayor and Mayoress doing the honours.

We took both boats…

…and all four skiffs rowed up into the town and raced back against the tide with a good crowd lining the river bank to cheer the rowers on.

‘You know who’ and ‘you know who’ took on the arduous task of providing support from the comfort of the KLCRC RIB!…

Finally about twelve of us retired to Marriot’s for a jovial CRAB lunch-in-company organised by Andrea and Barrie.

Thanks to Alan for making sure we have the pictures to prove it.
