Today was a good day, made christmas lunch for some elderly people and i really enjoyed it, i made the stuffin balls, steamed sprouts, glazed carrots and the sausage and bacon wraps. Also today i cleaned part of the galley as we are going on christmas leave so we have to deep-clean. Which i think is good as it keeps the high standards of the galley up and it prevents bad food production, or as my chef says work in mess and create mess.

Rowing - Poznan World Cup, June 2008

12 people rate this

The final World Cup regatta in Poland was the last opportunity for us to compare ourselves to the majority of the qualified Olympic opposition. After getting Andy and Tom back into the boat (with their injuries behind them) we knew that we had a lot to do in a short space of time.


We finished 2nd to the Dutch crew who we have raced at nearly every international regatta for the last 4 years – it is a big step up from the 8th place of Lucerne, but still not where I want to be and it is hard to hide the signs of disappointment after defeat.
