Starting to get to grips with the tides and current in our river. Despite all the warnings, the weather was good and we got a good 4 sessions in, took a look down river at Fisher Fleet and up river to the Fishing boats at Boal Quay. Lynn looks very different from the water. A really nice start to the weekend.
We have set aside several no-obligation dates for people to try the sport, no experience necessary and all safety gear provided. These are to be held at Saddlebow, the safe, OASC inland water we use for practice; and at the slipway in Kings Lynn, for tidal experience.
Suitable for all ages; the exercise is aerobic, low impact, very social and great fun; There is also the opportunity to meet the builders and pick up tips about boat handling and boat building if you wish.
Challenge yourself; come to one and meet a new club of people with a shared, practical, outdoor interest. (Please note; under 18s must be accompanied by an adult)

We thought we should try a launch and recover from the slipway in Kings Lynn, just so we have a little knowledge before the big day on the 11th April. We picked the best evening of the year so far and had a great time. The pictures are by Chris Neve who just happened to be on the bank watching us. The experienced hands will note we are short a cox; Scotty decided he wanted a row! Reminder to self; fit a rear view mirror so that we can get back to the beach.
We’ve reached a very special stage in our project and it’s time to concentrate on being a rowing club.
So, the Lynn Réwet has taken to the water for the first time, at Saddlebow; the Relief Channel, off the River Great Ouse.
All went to plan… The boat performed as did the weather.
