How to Row in Paradise – A Recipe

I recently spent time in Paris, so good food is top of mind. Often the case for rowers!  I also like to cook, and quote Julia Child’s maxim, which basically says that if you don’t start with good ingredients, how can you make good food? Reflecting back on our recent rowing...

First Ever Row to Sibuya

We are certain that we are the first people to row the river.  Yes, lots have been on it in other craft, including canoes and kayaks, but not rowing shells.  This was a rare opportunity in our busy, “been there, done that” world.  So ours was a first ever, an easy exploratory...

In June 2014, we ran our first ever  Four Rivers in Ireland trip. That year we rowed River Slaney in County Wexford. There was the wonderful scenery and fabulous wildlife (seals and hundreds of swans) but the special feature was that we rowed traditional river cots. Edermine...
