Göran R Buckhorn takes another look at Jan Servin’s photographs from the 2016 World Rowing Masters Regatta. Göran writes:

Again, going through the wonderful photographs by Jan Servin from the World Rowing Masters Regatta at Lake Bagsvaerd, Copenhagen, between 8 and 11 September, some silly captions popped up in my head. For you to enjoy or dislike:

‘I’m telling you, it was out there – a bee, as big as a bird’.

‘I can’t remember the colour of the handles, but the shaft is black, the collars are pink-ish and the blades are white’.

No, this is not the line for free Danish beer. However, the fact was that, at Bagsvaerd, a good Danish glass of beer was 35 Danish kroner (£4; US$5.25), while a bottle of Swedish mineral water was 55 Danish kroner (£6.30; US$8.25)!

It was the funniest thing. The money for the shell was donated by some sort of Count in Transylvania......

With a smile like this, it seems the lady from Aalesunds Roklub, Norway, thinks half the race is won by just picking up the bow number.

‘Please hurry up, my race starts in 10 minutes.....’

‘Please.... tell me when we have crossed the finish line......’

‘There’s supposed to be a red big buoy here somewhere, or maybe it’s white…?’
True supporters: ‘It doesn’t matter if you didn’t win, Honey, you are still the best in my book’.

Thinking bubble: ‘Then after we have crossed the finish line, we row to the dock, get the boat on the rack, take a warm shower, get dressed and then hit the Regatta Restuarant, where I am going to order a bottle of Carbernet Sauvignon – and the other girls can drink what they want’.
