Denver Sluice Our New Location 16/10/16

photo-16-10-2016-16-14-15Denver Sluice saw a different type of Rowing Boat upon the water on Sunday not the sleek Sculls of the local rowing club but our wonderful St Ayles Skiff.

We had a great turn out for the club with some new members some (ehem!) old members and a couple of have-a-goers.

So we had both Rewets out on the water with full crews which is always good to see, and a couple of tag-a-longs in Kayaks (don’t ask different adventure).

The sun shone brightly on the two crews as they set off towards Hilgay if albeit a tad on the windy side (again not fun in an inflatable Kayak).

The crews set off in good form with the new guys and gals picking it up quickly with instruction from our competent Cox’s and our experienced crews.

The two crews attempted to get to Hilgay with tight banks and moored boats with the use of short oars and bow and stroke sides, but alas they were forced to turn back so with both crews returning to the slip for much needed hot chocolate and flapjacks and catch up. photo-16-10-2016-16-15-25

A good successful location for when the tides aren’t right or for training.

Thank you Denver.

Next Time….  Wells-Next-Sea Saturday 22/10/16
