With the benefit of experience, G&g2 is a lighter skiff that G&g1 which could be seen as she was powered out of the tiny marina home of WSV Woudrichem by the crew who have been in regular practice for next weekend’s Great River Race. Both G&g1 and G&g2 together with Dwarsbongel will be in London next weekend to boost the numbers of St Ayles competing.

Dwarsbongel has now been sold to a group in Heusden in Brabant who are intending building a second, and on Sunday, the three skiffs will be taken to Deventer for their Slooproein Club to try out.

We have been the guests of the club here in Woudrichem, and I can strongly recommend a visit to this very pretty old city. The rowing club here will make you very welcome.
