Geoff, we seem to have three port side oars in the Celtic. Or at least I could not sort them into pairs. Please look, I think a sleeve might need turning. I tried standing on my head but it did not help.
The repair is holding up well, I could not feel a difference.
Geoff let's you and I look at this together please as the ladies who rowed the GRR confirmed that the broken oar was indeed stroke side. We discovered today that the remaining oars are incorrectly labelled which may be what caused the confusion.
