2020 New Year Row to the Isle of Wight

Gig Rowing to the Isle of Wight

The Thames Barbarians brave the new year cold and row across the Solent.

Early morning launch from the slipway at Lee on the Solent saw us heading off across a flat calm Solent to lunch in Cowes. The sea fret rolled in halfway across adding a little bit of drama. After a good pub lunch we re-launched and put the hammer down to arrive back first on the beach, recover the boat and head back to base at Northney. Little did we know then what awaited us in 2020, so lucky to take the opportunity and row!
