Men’s squad goes ‘ooop north’
In the spirit of Rocky 3, the Curlew Senior Men loaded the trailer and headed north to the cold and harsh environment of the North East. However, having seen the weather on the continent – the North East actually proved to be a blessing in disguised. 4 gloriously sunny (if not cold) days rowing out of Durham University BC – allowing “Captain” Steve to relive his youth, Mike to annoy the locals and Corney/Jamie to sing along to the tour theme tune, Taylor Swift – Soon to be on Youtube.
The out come of the trip, the coxed IV is a faster boat than the coxless IV – regardless of who rowed in it. Coach Martin is easily angered when crews overrate by more than 10 pips, Pete, bizarrely managed to sit in the bows of the coxed IV – not sure Martin has realised yet, and joelle managed to give herself food poisoning…not a bad effort. Also, every boat club needs a barbaba.
Thanks to Durham Uni for allowing us to use their equipment and to TURC for being such great hosts.
Men Squad on tour!
