Regatta season on..

well the 2010-2011 rowing season began yesterday, the first regatta at the Lake Ruataniwha Rowing Complex for the season,

I missed yesterday's action as I was busy here in the shop, there are obviously a number of rowing followers that quilt! I missed Rowing Man's big race early yesterday morning, he won his single sculls race and beat his nemesis, so you can imagine that he is pretty chuffed about that. I got a text message after the race that simply said "WAHOO" so I knew that he had won. Go Rowing Man!!

Today I managed to get away for a bit, and watched him row in the Master's quad race, which they won also.

it is such a wonderful day for rowing, and these lads were certainly very happy with their efforts!! One more race today and then home for a BBQ tea, YUM!!

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend
