The Gig has 4 Pulling (rowing) a Lazy Bow
and a Cox. The first of the Crews boarded at Marlow slip and we
made our way out onto the River. After passing through Marlow
lock the Scouts settled in for the longest stretch of our row to
Windsor. After 1 ½ hours we reached the first change over point
where part of the crew swapped over. The next leg was to our
lunch point at Boulters Lock for a well-earned break. With
another crew on board we made for the next Lock at Bray and then
onto Boveney Lock. With a final crew swap we headed for the
finish line in Windsor.
completed the 13 miles ahead of time, the scouts all did great.
Now it was time to collect the Sponsor money and the Scouts did
just as well, with just over £100 pounds raised by one Scout
All the money will go into our Special projects fund which is
currently raising money to repair our Scout Huts roof and the
pot holes in the Car Park. We also need to raise money to
overhaul our other gig and bring it back into working order.
