From Tim Seru of the Argo Dreads:
Despite a doubtful start; worry about us getting in and out of the water safely, we had a thoroughly enjoyable race. There was some confusions and searching for numbers which ended with us shouting our number (123) to anyone wearing hi-vis vests, including some confused walkers. Spotting the marshall, the gorgeous weather conditions and the joy of getting out on the river made for a great time. Our race was rowed solidly with the rating kept low – in in the main -and our time was respectable even beating a masters D squad. Upon our return to Logans Way, getting out of the water was a tricky effort, involving wellied bank helpers and number 4 jumping out of the boat to hold the boat to ensure no damage to the boat rudder; those of the crew without Sealskinz or wellies hopefully have not got any long term ailments resulting from paddling in the Cam but towels were on hand and shivering was kept to a minimum. Mince pies from Jeremy were a much welcomed infusion of calories and after a carefully spaced out crew photo we split up.
