Back to the grind

Regatta season ended several weeks ago in an anticlimactic way for me and my club. For one I went on a family vacation the weekend of the Oahu championship races and two the regatta was cancelled anyway due to debris and unsafe water quality at the race venue.

I’ve rejoined my club for long distance practices and my first was Wednesday after a three week long break. I felt good and not winded after that practice but I was in the slowest boat and in seat 5. Friday’s practice I was with a faster crew in seat three and I’m definitely feeling some wear on my body this morning. Sunday practice at 7 am so I better get a good night’s rest and set my alarm correctly.

Friday’s practice route.
