So I braved the mist and freezing conditions to do the 10k time trial. Somehow I managed the 2 laps, but boy Shadow does not like flow! Used a wooden paddle today whilst waiting for my light weight paddle to arrive, the result of this is 1 blister.
On the return home to the boat house, I decided to throw myself of the boat into the river roughly 10m from the boat house. Very frustrated with myself and lost my hat. Thank you to the fisherman who helped me though whilst his mates looked on.
Next time... Put hat in dry bag and remember spare trousers!
