All rowers performed very well and the craft all moved through the water in a very stable manner coping with the current with ease. We are all getting close to the start of the trek down the river. TAFE training is coming to a close so it is with some sadness that the students are leaving but also the excitement is building with the expectations of the launch Friday next week, 22nd of November. I hope locals support this unique talented group of people the last two years worth of Thursdays have been an absolute pleasure to be involved in. From little things big things grow on so many levels!
