The London Great River Race is now only days away
All members of the six teams from Aberdyfi who are competing in London's 21 mile river marathon have been training hard for several weeks.....(although some perhaps more than others!) .....
........we have rowed far up the estuary past floating sheds and magical castles -rowed way out to sea and to the Dysynni -have suffered blisters and much more, but now practically ready, we are gearing up for our day on the Thames.....
.... although training has been difficult for the last few days because of gusty winds, huge swells and stormy seas, some teams will hope to get a couple more sessions in before leaving for London.
...thanks to all members who have helped the teams over the last few weeks with coxing etc, and special thanks to members who have volunteered to drive and to tow boats down to London........
Huge thanks must go to Alun Stedman, our club captain and head coach, who has always been available to go out with each team, whenever required, for invaluable coaching and training.
..... here are the ladies...Kara Chesworth, Toni Francis, Beth Parry and Rhian Jones on a recent training session with Alun.
