Good Morning Cygnets !!!

Great Racing Saturday in St Neots. Where we had one 8+ and three 4+ racing. Unfortunately no pots but great races under all weather conditions , sun , wind, rain, hard rain.

Congratulations to the Novices for their first win and the senior 4+ which offer exiting races to the crowd, losing for a few feet in their final , the racing course became to short for them at the end....

Sunday a nice rowing under the rain with a 4x and 8+ .

Many Thanks to Scott for driving the trailer to St Neots, Hannah and Anna for coxing and the Novices for deloading the trailer on Sunday after the outing.
