After a pretty intense week of agri-environmental politics it was good to get out onto the sea this morning at Exmouth. The crews from the World Championships on the Isles of Scilly have now been selected and I am rowing at 1 in the B boat – really chuffed.
Seat 1 is at the bow i.e. the pointy end! Ben, our cox is at the stern (next to seat 6) and we are having a breather off the beach at Exmouth
Using our lovely new race oars
We rowed around 3.6 miles and it was the first time we have ever trained as a race crew – high hopes!
