For the benefit of anyone who has been on the planet Mars for the last few months, Ron ( of Ron & Cheryl fame ) is retiring soon.
Ron's first day of retirement is 26th Nov and he has requested the regular midweek rowers put on an extra exciting special row in honour of this fine day.
Weather etc permitting we will aim to tow to Dell Quay, launch there, pub lunch at Bosham, return.
HW is roughly 13:30, just off peak springs
We need two towers, and will take the double trailer, and single each with one galley on.
More details nearer the time, this post is to ask Ron's many friends to keep the date free, anyone welcome. I imagine we will meet at the Mill about 9:30.
All this is weather dependent anyway and I'll take a decision nearer the time as to whether to shrink it to a normal row from the Royal Oak - or try for the original plan, which seemed so reasonable when the sun was shining.
Tower 1 - Andrew
Tower 2 - Greg
2 x galleys, each with a rotating passenger, so 12 places, no more.
