Andy, just as a suggestion, if there was a large sign up, so a Claydon was needed. The Claydon crew could do a shorter row to take in launch and recovery time. Allowing the gallies to get down the harbour and back.
If we get one more crew signed up we can take a Claydon.
I have spoken to Geoff on the phone this afternoon and I will see how things work out on Saturday.
First and foremost this is a social row with only two hours daylight available and i dont want to get bogged down in moving Claydons around at the expense of the row.
Given the time of year and the unsettled weather at present i also want to be 100% confident that we have put Mabel securely back on her mooring, so please leave this with me and i will take a view on the day.
I told Geoff that we had little daylight to work with and he was happy with whatever call i make.
If we cant switch the Claydons on Saturday, we can perhaps do it the following wednesday or Thursday.
