(For the) record

We set a record today: best practice attendance ever!

50% of all members showed up on a dreary Saturday morning at 7 AM. Drizzling rain and temperatures in the 50ies.

We boated 2 quads, a double and a single and ran out of club owned oars.

No speed records. Too windy for that. And today's drill was: stay together and focus on blade work. We did OK until the slower quad got cocky and wanted to overtake everybody else. The race started instantaneously. Australia won, before the Hedi and the single. The 2x was too far away for the testosterone to kick in.

As proof that the conditions can also be calm and sunny, here the sunset row picture from Friday evening:

Not bad for only the 2nd time in a rowing boat!
