You Are Here

Last night, we met after work at the waterpoint in the rain, and chugged down the river to find a spot on the Common, stickers carefully (and proudly) affixed to windows.

We chose to moor opposite Trinity Hall Boat Club. We saw a couple of other spots which would be suitable, but this one had the biggest gap. Over the next few weeks we may move about to try different places, but this is where we are now:

And it feels great. James first thought that he'd like to live in a boat on the Cam 4 and a half years ago, when he coxed from Clare Boat Club and saw the narrowboats moored opposite. Now we can see it from our window, he's come full circle. We celebrated with chocolate pancakes, bacon pancakes, and (for me at least) a large gin and tonic!

  1. Congratulations!
    We will look out for you when we boat into town.

  2. Looking good. Judging from the flow in the Cam at Hinxton earlier today, you might need you poles sooner rather than later.


  3. All you need now is a small tender to row to the boathouse!
