Quad to Castle and Back

Tuesday evening is quad evening this week (because I will be on a business trip on Thursday).

Before the training, we broke the news to “Turkey” (some of us have nicknames) that we are going to row the quad in Hazewinkel in this constellation. Selection has been made and we will now train without crew changes. Good news for him because his pair partner cannot make it to Belgium.

He was happy as a child. Jumping up and down in the changing room.

“I am going to Belgium! I am going to Belgium! Guys, I am so happy! I gotta tell my wife!”

Training with the quad is interesting. A lot of time spent messing with the boat. When we rowed, we did steady state and technique:

It was interesting to steer through the narrow and windy part of the river with a foot steered quad:
