Saturday 11th January brought a mixed bag of weather: wind, sun and cloud. Amy, Diana, Duncan, Barry and Roger decided on the most sheltered route to Wayford Bridge. Roger, rowing for the first time on the Broads,picked up Duncan’s stroke rhythm quickly and good progress was made with Amy and Diana rowing at two and three. Two fishermen and two passing cabin cruisers provided the only company. The sunny refreshment stop at the bridge was particularly pleasant with coffee, shortbread and biscuits.
On the return journey – with Diana coxing, Barry at stroke, Duncan at three, Roger at two and Amy at bow – gusting, changing winds made the going interesting. With some adjustments to the timing, Barton Turf was reached at midday. It was a really enjoyable time on the water.
