An early start for everyone - We fielded 4 quads - everyone arrived on time despite the early start and cold conditions.
The Open Boys quad off to a strong start - Matt had given each boat a "game plan" so they could use the route to practice various exercises.
The Open Girls are on their way (Kirsty shows off the latest head gear)
Kirsty without head gear - everyone looking comfortable
The Open Girls again - in good spirits
The Junior Girls quad (about now, they realised that there were still 24Km to go.....)
There were spectators at various points along the route which added a real "festival" feel
The Open Girls minus a few layers of clothing
The Junior boys quad were so far ahead that we only caught up to them at the end
The Open Boys quad about to pass the Brady bunch
The morning quickly warmed up - hell in Africa hey !!

You would never have guessd that they have just rowed 30Km !!The faces say it all (Ross and Alex)
Ryan relaxes after a long hard row.........yeh right !!
