Anybody fancy a row up the Hamble on Weds 24th? High tide is midday-ish so the plan is to launch at Warsash and row up the Horse and Jockey for lunch with beer.
The provisional plan is to meet at the boat park at 09.30, returning at about 16.00.
Philip Meakins has emailed to say that he has a crew for Solent galley Avery A so they will be joining us on Wednesday. He has five, so there is a spare place on Avery A if anyone wants to row with them, starting at the Elephant Boatyard in Bursledon.
There has been some interest in taking Mabel along as well, if we can raise a crew. So if you would like to row the Hamble in a Claydon (possibly on a slightly less athletic course starting at Swanwick rather than Warsash) please post here.
Philip has also emailed with the following suggestions for the trip:
"Would you like me to see if there are any spaces at the curry house ie a Bah Humbug curry.
If you did , how many Langstonites. if not , were you thinking of eating at the pub, cos if not we could have a bah humbug picnic."
I quite like the idea of a picnic but on the whole I would prefer the pub. The Horse and Jockey is very welcoming and the food is OK.
Horse & Jockey def gets my vote too. And looking at the numbers of warm bodies wanting to row up the Hamble we seem to be seven? ....... if it helps, I'd be perfectly happy to tip the balance to six for the Warsash galley and toddle off to the Elephant yard to row with Philip Meakins' crew in Avery A if they've got a spare place.
Today's mince pie / cake promise for the Bah Humbug row still holds good - just have to make sure there's enough for the Elephant's crew as well! :-)
I still have the lurgy and no sign of improvement, so unfortunately I won't be able to come out to play tomorrow. What a pity as it sounds a great row which I have never done before. Merry Xmas everyone.
Such a shame, get well soon Liz and Teri!
The crew now is:
We will meet at the boat park at 09.30. Philip Meakins is coming out in the Solent galley Avery A and we will meet them on the water.
See you all tomorrow!
