First evening row

First evening paddle in 2016 and one of the reasons we row. Moments like this make up for all those horrid, choppy winter training days. More to come soon…I hope!

Seville, November 2015

A sneaky visit to Seville for some nice winter sun. With a bit of rowing thrown in. It’s not all work!

Henley Masters, 2015

The last outing for the Odd Quad at Henley, eventually losing by 1 3/4 lengths to a team from Sweden –  ironically in a boat called SAAB which used to belong to them! But a good race nonetheless.
