What a day! The annual regatta for the Pot de Chambre (yes, the chamber pot) took place again on Saturday the 11 November. The friendly but fierce competition between the neighboring clubs was blessed by much better weather than expected. Under the lead of ARZ's eminent René all four clubs; ARZ, PRC, CNF and Nordiska were competing in five categories. Three rowing categories; Yoles de Mer (or c-gigs), 4x and eights as well as sack jumping and tug of war was on the agenda.
The Nordiska team showed that the last minute rule change to 50/50 men/women did not rock our boats, although some changes needed to be made and frustration was sensed. Nordiska rowed home clear victories in all three categories, also coming in second place in tug of war and sack jumping, securing the Pot’s place at Nordiska.
A very happy president Thomas and head of rowing Teresia are humbled and awed with the fantastic club spirit and the amazing sprints. Maybe the 30 veterans who were cheering us on were what made us push ourselves? Thank you to all amazing people who joined, supported, served good food and to best neighbors ever.
See you next year again!
