ROWING

CCRC enjoyed a fabulous re-visit to Malagas this weekend!

We traveled with two quads, two doubles, and a single with a party of four rowers who went as far as the Duiwenshok River from Vermaaklikheid before joining us at the Breede on Friday evening. Our first club tour to the Breede River in three years.

We were fortunate with excellent weather in spectacular surroundings, fast water, just had to beat the afternoon breezes!

What a success with superb camaraderie, support, long-time and new friendships, a simply unbeatable club family.

Here's to all our fantastic tour planners who read the tides, and sought the best accommodation for all 24 of us.

Grateful for our packers, towers, rowers, foodies, partners, spouses and supportive families who make these tours so special.
