Barton Row, December 14th.

Thanks to Sue W for the following report.

“Unfortunately we were a deplete team as Richard was prevented from joining us by the closure of Wroxham Bridge, reason unknown.  Despite this Adrian managed to join us having circumvented the problem after a mystery 40 minute detour!  So after a later start I joined Adrian as cox with David, Roland and myself in stroke, 3 and 2 positions respectively, leaving bow unoccupied.   In ideal weather we rowed around the Broad and took our much earned break at Gay Staithe, somewhere new to me which felt very much off the beaten track and so peaceful.   Roland took the helm for our almost deserted return row.   Though Richard was missed, we were feeling very grateful that we hadn’t aborted our outing at the beginning.”
