Fun Up River

Fun Up River

What a great start to the season. Thanks to the 19 boats who made the effort to travel to Essex for the opening event of the season. It was a challenging race day on the Sunday but one which everyone seemed to enjoy, or were they just being polite? Saturday was as always great fun as can be seen from the picture of Julie Lee has posted up. If they had sound you would have heard her coming! Small break now until Manor Park on the 6th June. Just time to get your breath back. Hope to see lots of you there again.

As a committee post new...
