Gwragedd Annwn at sea. Her balance is just about perfect with one rower…me.
This is the beginning of a great rowingship.
Slowly bringing her up to speed.
A quick turn to Port.
Accelerating out of the turn.
A quick spin in front of the club.
Paul has the dolly ready on the ramp at Hollyburn Sailing Club.
I bring her slowly towards the dolly.
Approaching the ramp and dolly, lining up to beach Gwragedd Annwn.
I am using “Redwing’s” dolly. I know that the dolly is too short and the haul-up will be awkward.
Getting her centred on the dolly.
Home at Hollyburn Sailing Club. I will make a custom dolly for her to use.
