Caernarfon September 4th 2011

The first race started at about 1 pm. We fielded two crews, Elaine, Max, Sue and Tina, coxed by Edw and Heather, Nicola, Pippa and Steph, coxed by Steve Pass.

Both crews were too far into the stream and had to row hard against crews further inshore and finished towards the back of the field.

and a scratch crew, Dafyd and Noel together with a man and a woman who had never rowed before.

They managed to avoid finishing last. Our two mixed crews were made up of rowers who had already rowed in a race that day and were well beaten.

A welcome bowl of soup in the Royal Welsh Club finished the day off. And then the rain came down.
