Winter Series... Maldon!
Sunday 6th March 2022.
On a bitterly cold day with cutting N/E winds the Harkers Yard teams turned out for this leg of the winter series. Although we have been to Maldon before, this time we launched at the end of the promenade walk. An interesting and exposed place with a statue of Byrhtnoth at its most seaward point. This character died in the battle of Maldon 911 defending the town from a Viking invasion.
One wonders if one of our current rowers is related to the Vikings, his appetite to grow a beard and constant references to Valhalla makes you think. Today however he was full of Vim & Vigour and ready to plunder & pillage a leading place in the race.
Although cold and windy, the gigs managed to complete the racing in great style.
Well done to all BCRC teams!
Thank you to Maldon for hosting this event.
