Carolyn & Andy joined a then very small and basic Lincoln Rowing Centre around 8 years ago. They decided they wanted to take part in the 41st Vogalonga in 2015. They organised the hiring of a boat in Venice and were joined by friends from Ancholme Rowing Club, Gill, Peter and Andrew. It was a fabulous and surreal experience, starting in St. Marks Basin and rowing around the islands, a course of around 30km together with around 1800 other boats with a total of over 6500 participants. Magical.
Well done to all who took part in the rowing challenge but special congratulations go to Paul Holmes and Elizabeth Gray (14!!) who won 3 months family membership to Burton Waters rowing a massive 335 and 284 metres in a minute. If you ever get bored of Canoeing Lizzy we are down at Stamp End 😉
