The Changing Of The Boats.

Thanks to Tom G for the following account of the outing on Monday 28th January:

“By complete coincidence, today’s intrepid crew brushing off the ice from the skiff at Barton turned out to be four-sixths of the team which tackled the legendary Ocean to City Race in Cork back in 2015. Happy memories! Unlike Cork in summer, we remained dry, and the mixture of sun, cloud and the tail end of the previous night’s gale enlivened a brisk row to the north, where we enjoyed a brief on-board stop for coffee and the remains of Rob’s tasty Christmas Cake. Apart from the recently shot pheasant floating near a group with guns, there were few birds, although we did “clock” Kestrel, Buzzard and Marsh Harrier.”

Bluejacket is now in Barrie’s workshop ready to be rubbed down. Sign up on the calendar to help with this. Hoi Larntan is at Barton, ready for outings. Thanks to all who helped with the changeover, particularly Rob who organised the logistics and Alan C who towed.

Crew: Tom G, Alan C, Barry H, Rob D, Richard B and Manu.
