Captain’s Log 25th May

It dawned warm and dry and Saturday 25th May had a different look to it as we cheerfully prepared to go rowing.
Should we go the left of Cei Ballast or to the seaward side? Well of course it was Max and her crew that braved the gap, and on a day like this, of course they made it! So with two boats of 6 we rowed to Portmeirion.
Geoff and his ‘safety’ crew went searching for a route around Ynys Giftan but to no avail.
Right, we said, let’s all go to the mill at Ynys, again, thwarted by the ever present sand banks a tactical withdrawal  towards Portmeirion started. With Ruth’s guests as our figureheads off we went. We reach the concrete boat and rafted up, made some crew changes and with our guest called Beth in the bow seat, we set off back towards Porthmadog.
With camera’s clicking and new cox’s practicing we made our way, thinking of the beautiful buffet waiting at the club.
So back to the boat-shed, boats sorted, kit put away and soggy Crocs and socks placed outside our cars, it was upstairs to rehydrate and refuel.
What a spread we had, with pies and puds and sarnies and salads there was plenty for everyone.
So time to make our way home, with lawns to cut and dogs to walk.
We didn’t need anyone else today, we didn’t need to race, no prizes or victory speeches to worry about, because we are the rowers, family, guests and friends of MYC Rowing,  Porthmadog.
So thank you to all our people, whether you were able to make it or not today, because it is the people who make a successful club.
So let’s get ready to go again and support each other in our friendly, fair and inclusive club.
We are the winners today.
