And some from Olly at the Start

Back in the early Autumn over a post rowing coffee Keith suggested that URC should go cross country skiing and so it began. Six members of Upton RC decided to accompany Keith and try something different by way of winter training so they ventured out to Seefeld in the Austrian Alps for some cross-country skiing.  Despite having never done this sport before they were quickly able to get the idea and benefit from some great exercise in the most beautiful environment as the photos below bear witness.  Seefeld plays host to the Nordic Skiing World Championships 19 Feb – 3 Mar 19 and the experts can be seen in action on Eurosport, or streamed from the FIS website on the same tracks as used by the Upton rowers.

Well done to everyone who took part in the January mini head. Thank you to our starters John and Malcolm and our finishers Bruce and Marc. Also thank you to Jo and Linda for organising crews.

36 club members took to the River Severn to enjoy a special Festive Row on Sunday. With the crews dressed in Yule apparel, the fleet included a men’s eight, a women’s eight, three quads and a coxed four. After a 10 kilometre non-competitive row the crews rehydrated and refuelled on an athletic mix of mulled wine, mince pies and assorted pastries and sweets back at the boathouse. Grateful thanks to the Sunday Coaches who organised this excellent event and for getting us in all the Christmas spirit.
