It has finally arrived! The men of our rowing club, Chesterton RC, have been rowing a slowly collapsing, wobbly wooden boat for years. It is a beautiful thing, top of the range for when it was built, but now sadly past its best. They have raced on Cam in what has come to be known as The Wardrobe, and still been competitive, so a new boat is likely to motivate and improve the mens' squad quite significantly.
On Wednesday evening, James and I helped rig it. It is very new and very shiny - the men can't wait to get out in it!
