But

LANGSTONE CUTTERS ROWING CLUB WON :-

Fastest Time from London to Paris - by more than 6 hours

Commiserations ..but WELL DONE to Le Fig who crossed the finish line at Paris in front.. so managed to win the last leg - and were as far as I can see brilliant opponents- We're all very very proud of all of you...

Congratulations to BOTH TEAMS - valiant efforts and a superb week - good friends - its all about the taking part..

I feel knackered and I'm only typing this up!!!!!!!

But the comment was

"STORMED IT!" (Steve - go to bed!)

Crew all fit, well happy and KNACKERED! all tucked up in hotels having eaten and now resting..
(apart from Colins shoes...but more of that story to come - its worth waiting on!)
