Denver Sluice to The Ship Brandon Creek 31/3/18

We ( Scottie Myself Jon Nat Keith + a small passenger Liam) left the Sluice at 10.15 and got off to a good start. It was a long row against the current but we didn’t stop we kept on rowing and rowing after 1 hour 45 mins we thought we had the end in sight…But soon realised WE DIDN’T!!! Which was a real dissapointed to say the least. It was nice and dry but getting colder, then, after another 15 mins we finally saw the pub and gave a little cheer, the final time was 2hrs and 4 mins non stop we were all fairly Knackered but it was good to see our team mates on the mooring waiting to greet us.
After a lovely lunch and a warm up we waved goodbye to Keith, Jon, Nat and Nathan and team two ( Scottie, me Jim Mark Catherine and our Guest Shaun set off back to Denver and it was chucking it down!! But with the current in our favour we made very good time and got back to the sluice in 1 hour 16mins and the sun did come out for a little while. The route was 10.5 Kl each way which is 6.5 miles. We all agreed it was a good row and one to be repeated.

Barton Broad

Sunday 8th October
Five of us headed over to the broads for what turned out to be a lovely long row 12 kilometres in all, with a couple of stops for the usual tea cake and biscuits. The slipway was small but perfect for launching our boat. The rain stayed away and the sun was out for most of the row. Afterwards we stopped at a local pub for a quick drink and a round up of the day which we all concluded was well worth the drive. Our thanks go out to Scottie for towing and giving lifts.
