Another rowing book from the publisher of “Peter Antonie – Out of His Shell” is coming out during January. It is a history of professional sculling by Stuart Ripley. A flyer is available here.

The results of yesterdays regatta have been published and can be found here. The first two hours of the regatta had light to no wind, and then it picked up to 35-40 kpm/h with gusts to 50. This resulted in some races being shortened and running starts from the 1500m start.
