Along time ago @theoldmortuary used to row pilot gig boats competitively and have even rowed in World Championship competitions, but a busy working life in London stopped all that .
The clip below shows an on board perspective of the sport.
Yesterday tentative steps were taken to return to the sport. Which has given me the chance to use some old photographs of an arty farty sort.
Surprisingly good rowing was achieved , not perhaps worthy of a video and no wildlife joined in ( see video) but it was a happy and sunny return.
The weather remains wonderful for a Bank Holiday weekend.
