While the others were eating Bacon Sandwiches and drinking hot drinks TSUNAMI RIDER and TOPAZ took the opportunity to visit the Putney Slip and CHAS NEWEN's Marine Shop - which also has an excellent slip.

(Absolutely nothing to do with the 200 odd fit lady rowers that just happened to be there at the same time ..........)

Point of note - Chas Newens Marine were extremely helpful in finding the part Jono needed - and with much needed toilet facilities!)

And Recovery ......

What you can't see here - and we were all a little busy to take pictures ... was that the wind was almost gale force.

Also what can't be seen here is the excellent efforts of all crews to help each other recover in these extreme conditions.

Thats what makes Ribbing even more special.

A big Thanks to Jono for setting this up - and to all who attended - a great day

And on the way home .......

It's been a hard day's RIBBING, and 9 year old Henry needs to catch up on his beauty sleep .... (And he must be tired to snuggle up to his 14 year old sister Megan)
