Return of the pack (Cleddau 2016)

Sun and calm waters greeted us at Neyland this year on the rerouted course of the 'Return of the Cleddau'.  This year the trail took us from Neyland up river to a turning point at Llangwm and then back to Neyland.  Mumbles this year entered one Men's crew of Steve C, Nigel G, Andy F, Chris R and Christian H and a Women's crew of Rachel H, Ellie W, Jane from Aberaeron, Meg A and Danielle M.  A smoothly executed mass start signalled the beginning of the hard first leg up stream, where we bumped into old friends - Chris Terry on the single yole- the return leg proved faster and very quickly we were sprinting to the finish line at Neyland. The Men placed 4th in Cariad-Y-Mor with a time of 1:51:53 and the Women in 'This way up' 17th with a time of 2:15:55 .  Many thanks to Chris R and Andy F for towing and ferrying in their vans.
