Sunday morning row…

Barry brings news of a bright outing in the sun, introducing one at least one to a slightly different rowing experience:

“The crew – Diana, Amy, Catherine, Chris and  Barry – set off on a sunny Sunday morning to row to Wayford Bridge. The wind was brisk but the sheltered route made for a very pleasant trip. Refreshment was taken just short of the bridge: chocolate biscuits, coffee and a wee dram of whisky, again, to keep off the chill. Chris, on his first Barton outing after rowing with the Lower Thames Club, enjoyed the experience as Amy’s pictures show.”

Best Wishes, Barry.1517162454811-140237493.jpg

Who said winter was dull in Norfolk?

Thursday’s excursion from Barton to How Hill was accompanied by Chris Taylor, professional photographer from Sheringham who took some great shots in the boat, from the bank, and using a drone, from above. And the weather co-operated! This was an initial test session, we plan to do some more at Blakeney, perhaps with both boats out.

Here’s a a video and selection of photos – the full set can be seen at Chris Taylor’s website

May the spirit be with you…

Barry reports on another breezy but beautiful winter’s outing from our base on the Broads:

“Don’t be deceived by the calm, sunny background in this picture. The wind was quite strong in places. A crew consisting of Jenny, Rob, Steve, Humphrey and Barry set off from Barton Turf in good spirits and rowed through and well beyond Wayford Bridge. After a well earned stop for refreshment, including a quick nip of winter warming whisky, the crew completed the return journey in a much faster time. It was a really good outing!”


Good spirits both ways, seemingly?
