Madog Rowing Club held our annual Frosty Fish Introduction Race on 28th December. Eight mixed crews of experienced and novice rowers raced from the harbour to Borth a Gest. The weather was fairly kind to us with only scattered showers and a light wind, it was as ever a little chilly. The winning crew of Shakey, Bethan, Rob Lloyd and Cai pulled the distance in an amazing 14 minutes 34 seconds a full 30 seconds faster than the second crew home.
The crews were welcomed home by a warming glass of mulled wine to beat the chill, followed by a fantastic lunch provided by Sawatree of the Thai Restaurant.
A very successful day, which we hope has encouraged more rowers to join us in our invigorating sport.
Thanks to all who organised, fed and coxed us, as always much appreciated.
