|The Resurrection of the GODS|
On Saturday morning, the three crews went out on the water to prepare for Sunday’s race. The water was beautifully still, the sun was shining and only a gentle breeze through the air… if only the same could be said for rowing in England! The afternoon was kicked off with a coach trip to the traditional and rather touristic seaside town of Volemdam. Some decided to carry on their race preparation and head straight to a pub, while others decided to walk about the town, sampling local food, avoiding the touristy photo shops whereby you could dress in ‘traditional’ Dutch dress and have your photo taken, head to the cheese museum and, of course, sample a few beverages! All in all, it was a nice relaxing trip to the seaside, before heading back to Alkmaar. The evening’s activities were kicked off with a visit to the Beer museum, and a wealth of rather odd sounding beers, then onto the Mexican buffet restaurant - tequila anyone?

As always our massive thanks go out to ARZV for hosting us once again, and to all those who organised the events and in particular all the hosts that accommodated us over the weekend. It was a weekend thoroughly enjoyed by all that went, and we look forward to welcoming the Dutch to Bath in the Autumn.
