HORR 2012 Video

My latest rowing blog find is "Something about rowing..." which apart from being very funny and illustrated with great stick people cartoons was written by a member of the Cambridge women's rowing team - go Cambridge! - and also as a NatSci / astrophysicist.

In a recent post about their recent win over Oxford (yeh!) she embedded this great video of what its like to row in the HORR race.

Very impressive rowing from the Thames Rowing Club, based here in Putney, as they power their way to victory. Good line the cox took - avoiding the trap of cutting the corners but losing the current.

Lots of familiar landmarks there for a stretch of the Thames that I have walked, ran, biked, sailed, kayaked, canoed and, at least in part, swum.
