MUMBLES ROWING CLUB BLOG POST 2015

Cool crew braves Autumn chill!

October has seen a new groupof enthusiastic newbies take to the water as we look to grow our membership. In the tender care of some of our more experienced rowers, both Cariad and This Way Up have been out in the bay crewed largely by novices. Richard, Ollie, Laura, Di, Tom (a new one), Nigel (another new one) and Christina were all put through their paces using Christian’s very own coaching manual. Techniques included standing up, cross-hands and eyes-closed rowing, plus learning to square-blade, feather and generally move the boat in (approximately) the right direction. A steep learning curve! Good fun was had by all, cakewas on hand (thanks Mandy) and we look forward to everyone joining and becoming regular rowers. f
