Had the big rowing regatta this past weekend. Our team managed to squeek out a respectable 3rd place finish in the Defender 8's. While the rest of the crew was disappointed by this finish I was pleasantly surprised as I far lower expectations based on the troubles we have had each week at practice. So I have my first (and most likely last) rowing medal to add to the special box. There was discussion on whether it warranted a position in said box but I have decided it does. It was a new challenge and although I don't love rowing I can respect the amount of effort and skill involved in getting from point A to point B with out getting hit or having someone crab.
Sunday morning NB and I ran the first 15K of the Scotia Half marathon course. There's a great downhill which was most enjoyable though the people running up it didn't seem so glad to see my smiling face and cheerful hellos.
Also checked out the Kitsilano Yacht Club. It reminds me a lot of the TSCC. The have some beautiful new Huki's there and the sailing lessons seem competitive. NB & JB have joined as JB And Neil are keeping their new boat there. If I take sailing lessons there then I can apply the cost to my membership...I just need to find out about the outrigger program. KYC is about a 5 minute walk from my house so it would be sweet.
