As temperatures reached 32 degrees and with not a scrap of shade, teams of rowers battled their way around the course in the Solent in homemade rafts, with much vocal encouragement from the crowds who had come to watch and enjoy the sunshine. Sadly I was not in the winning raft but our ladies team (photo attached - I am second on the right) came in a very respectable second in the ladies race, and we were third in the handicap race.

The purpose of the day is of course to raise awareness of and funds for the RNLI, but it is very much a fun day out. There is a decorated raft race, side stalls, a few graceful retirements accepting a tow back to the slipway, and support complete with water cannons provided by the RNLI and the Fire Brigade. As usual I had a great time and will be back next year. Suffice to say though that just about all my back and shoulder muscles are now keen to remind me of yesterday's activities!
