It's Rhine Time!
2nd October 2014
It's time to lay out your lederhosen, bring on the bratwurst and hunker down for 42km of hardcore marathon rowing. Cygnet and Barnes Bridge Ladies are once again making their annual pilgrimage to Dusseldorf this weekend to visit their friends at RG Benrath with what is perhaps the largest contingent of oarsmen yet. Six racing crews have been entered in the Rhine Marathon and that doesn't include those who are only 'heir fur das (alt) bier'.
The very best of luck to all our crews. Remember that golden rule: row fast, drink hard, break down.
And that's before the Killepitsch.........
