Goodnight 2018! Gotta rest before 2019!

Well, 2018 was a blast! China with our whole youth team and some awesome masters, Venice with a crowd of bubbly Australians and two honorary Aussies, Tuscany back-to-back indulging in high truffle and wine and olive oil season. Add in summertime youth rowing camps and visiting the friends we meet though these trips in their home stomping grounds ....our year felt nicely full!

It's time to settle down though and get busy working on 2019. The Cinque Terre Raid is a reality for 2019: there will be two coastal quads heading up the coastline and only two of the rowing seats are free. The rowing level required for this trip is "Zero Whining" and "Highly Skilled Seafood Eater" with a speciality in "Italian Nomenclature of Sea Breezes". Kidding aside, this is not the trip for novices! About 20km a day is our goal, in order to be able to adjust for inclement weather, although these coxed quads are fine with just about anything Mr. Mediterranean can through at them. (I don't know why, but seas are masculine in Italian.) This will all happen in May, from May 16-26.
