Last week, a group of SSRC volunteers assembled in the Boathouse for their first winter oar maintenance session lead by Bob Jennings.
Bob covered the various stages we need to go through to repair, varnish and re-leather our sets of oars in preparation for next season. It has been great to benefit from his expertise.
It is very much a case of 'many hands make light work’ as we didn't really appreciate how many hours go into rejuvenating so many oars!
For many of us, it's a great opportunity to learn some new skills whilst helping the Club. Please come along and join us of you can spare a couple of hours. We meet up on Sunday afternoons at 2pm and post all relevant announcements on the SSRC Facebook page.
