This weekend our local rowers, two grandchildren included are on their way to the Mytilene 'Regatta', row, row, rowing their boats to victory
Our Poros rowers, ages 11-15, and coaches, on their way to Mytilene on the island of Lesvos for the Greek National Champs.
Ferry boat from Poros to Piraeus, 2 1/2 hours. A few hours wait in Piraeus (port of Athens) and...
..... on to the next boat. Overnight to Lesvos
After a day of trials and course orientation, there's time for a visit to Ricky Raccoon and friends. Their hotel has a small collection of animals, including the raccoon, emus, deer, a llama, pigs, goats and ducks.
They've now rowed their first races and are on to the quarter finals.
Go Poros Go
Ricky looks a star. You must be very proud of your rowers. Thanks for sharing. Great photos LA.ReplyDelete
This is the second year they've taken part in these championships. They have a mighty time whether they win or notDelete
Good luck to your rowers. They seem to be having a good time 🙂ReplyDelete
The kids love these games. It's all a big adventure, hotel with buffet breakfast, swimming pool and usually they go for a visit to a monastery or tourist place. A really good holiday!Delete
Yelling from across the oceans for you xx
They are doing really well to get into the semis. These are teams from all over the country, but Poros always does well.Delete
Keep on shouting!!!
Good luck to the rowers. As you say, they will have fun whether they win or lose.ReplyDelete
A medal will be nice but not necessary.Delete
Good luck to the rowers, I'm sure they are having a great time.ReplyDelete
They have been training hard and doing well but just enjoying the whole tripDelete
I have rowed at Henley; but never successfully! Well done your crew.ReplyDelete
I wrote about Henley because one of my nephews is there with a NZ army crew. I remember you saying you were a rower. What a marvellous experience.Delete
Good luck to the rowers.ReplyDelete
