Just after 11am on Sunday Barbara Dawson blew the horn to welcome Tinderbox as the first boat across the line for the rowing time trial. There was a very mixed fleet - see a few snaps from the event below - and we expect there will be a protest against the underweight cox in Black Swan.Barb Dawson writes:
'Those who decided to stay snuggled up under the doona this morning, didn’t know what they were missing.
Stats - 26 people, 15 boats including La Chaloupe from Dover (who successfully managed to pressgang a crew and perform amazingly well), Imagine, Tinderbox, 5 kayaks, 4 sculls from the rowing club plus miscellaneous other rowboats.
Big thanks to Tony Cooper and Wendy Brown who produced an excellent BBQ and soup for us to sit in the sun and enjoy.'
