WAIRAU RIVER RUN

Our recent run on tk0SdUee-ttzwPdEsdDXoSEjVeJSIzGfCQBU_c8OZhe Wairau River Feb 6th was very pleasant.   A fleet of 9 boats, 17 crew.  The launching at Blenheim Rowing Club went well and we headed up stream with the tide led by Roger Randall in ‘Riverdance “.  We got up to the confluence of Spring Creek and the Wairau.  We stopped for lunch on a nice flat landing above the bridge where there are willows for shade.  Not too bad at all.  After lunch we took a run downstream to Roses Overflow joins the river. Although breezy, the river is quite sheltered on the upper reaches by the banks and willows.      u7djP6r2QA5LtA1iD0y0wcN3sE_Un6RwVOVwwsuwn5I5T5eZ-nHcsPP-BlRBUkuPCoZ-VRybWRLGofMm

Murray Sparrow had his first outing in his 10 footer.  After spending some years in a shed she was surprisingly water tight on the day.
