Winter Rowing


This is how they row in the winter in Finland, and if this bitter weather continues we could be doing it here in England too. Can't wait - it looks like huge fun.
Thanks to Steve Sagrott for the heads-up.

You might find this You Tube video interesting. There's some footage from the winter of 1963 when much of Chichester Harbour froze over.

Also lots of old footage of Bosham, Birdham, Dell Quay and Itchenor

Enjoying the blog,
Patrick

Hi Alberto, Yes, I believe it is one of Finland's many lakes.
