Göran R Buckhorn writes from Malmö, Sweden:
With the children off from school, my family and I went to my old hometown Malmö in the south of Sweden to visit my mother, family and friends. Of course, I dragged the whole family down to my Swedish rowing club, Malmö Roddklubb, where my dear friend Per Ekström, newly elected president of the club, had organised a ‘Club Pub’ – what a nice gathering it was. More than 25 old friends showed up during the evening and it was nice to see them all and once again ‘swing a glass’ of beer among friends.
However, there is more than beer drinking going on at the club. Right now, a club quadruple is training for ‘Henley Vets’ this summer. They look very serious in the boat at least….. HTBS will cover this year’s regatta, which is a week after ‘Henley Royal’.
