head of the river race

One of the teams, looking pleased and eager.

And here's the club I'm hoping to race with when they help me get a little better. They didn't do so well because one of their boat's gates were broken. (That's the little connecty bit that holds the oar in place at the end of the rigger.) But at least they managed not to row in circles, which I guess is the main thing.
