No time on the water today for me; light winds and there was a powerboat race taking place where I would have launched the rowing boat from. Instead, I enjoyed a swift stroll to the top of the hill in the sunshine and watched a bit of the racing, requirement to be outdoors satisfied.
I attempted to take the GoPro out with me on the Glow boat; needs some work in finding the best place for this to go to give the feedback I was looking for. After the training session, managed to capture the sun setting over the marina and town of St Peter Port.
It looked like there was a fine breeze and a small wave coming in at L’Ancresse Bay in Guernsey. Only downside was that it was high tide which made launching a little more interesting than normal with the waves washing over the slipway… Made it…
It looks like the boat will be ready in plenty of time for the beginning of the season with the potential opportunity for some on the water training before the first race. Painting complete, fixtures and fittings are being added.

There is now just one week to go until The Centurion Charity Row. Through November I have done over 300km on the Concept2 training for the event, think that’s about as prepared as I am going to be… More information can be found either off the link at the Guernsey Rowing Club or alternatively at […]
Now for something a little different… Can you tell what it is yet? I’m not exactly sure how well this will actually float mind you. I have already travelled over 150km with this during November and expect there to be much more distance left to go. Here is my final picture for you. If you […]
Decided to make the most of the sunshine and took a stroll along the nearby cliff paths down to the beach.
