Turns out I was not meant to be a rower. We did a rowing clinic here at the Delft Student Rowing Club Proteus Eretes (you can see the University in the background). I was on a crew of 4 and it was hard work! I managed not to sink the boat or seriously injure any of my crew mates. They were almost as happy as I was to see dry land. From now on, I will stick to canoes and kayaks or boats with motors.
