Practice makes perfect


A typical Sunday scene on the River Aire just upstream from Hirst Weir. It's where Bradford Amateur Rowing Club (BARC) have their clubhouse, built on land gifted to them in 1893 by Sir Titus Salt. This particular Sunday, those out on the river seemed to be single sculls, and there were trainers on the bank shouting out instructions. All the boats have names with 'Aire' in them - the one most visible in the photo was Solitaire.  Further along there was Heavyaire and Lightaire.

  2. If the rower were not wearing that little patch of red that photo wouldn't work half as well. Rowing has always appeared to me to be very hard work artfully disguised as fun.

  5. What a gorgeous shot of the river, Jenny! I have had 2 Airedale dogs (the best ever) and that was one reason I was pleased to see the river when I was there.

  6. What a lovely place to spend a Sunday afternoon. On the banks, of course, not sweating. I wouldn't want to be out in a shell straining to satisfy a coach.
