Hamble River Rowing launched

Hamble River Rowing launched on Saturday beneath cloudless and blissfully planeless skies. The club's home, the Jolly Sailor pub in Bursledon, teemed with people interested in rowing the pair of gigs that will be based on the pub's pontoon.
I am always in awe of people who can scull properly like this guy. He managed to get quite a speed up, though to do it he seems to have to face the wrong way, which rather detracts from sculling's main advantage which is that you can see where you are going.
