Winner's Secret Ingredients
Have you ever sat in the marshalling area of a winter head race and wondered why the heck you love this sport when it's so, so cold?
Last weekend's Dee Autumn Head tested the resolve of Pengwern crews. However, our Women's Masters 8 watched other crews shiver whilst they stayed (relatively warm) thanks to Liz's suggestion to don "Space Blankets".
Brilliant idea. Having warmed up rowing to the start the ladies then wrapped their legs in the blankets and retained the warmth.
A major contribution to their race performance..... or was it the Jelly Babies.
