Rutherford Head - 2 December 2023
No wind, some sun, but very, very, very cold

 Getting ready about 8.00am for Division 1 in -4°C; it warmed up to maybe 0°C deg C by Division 2!

Both divisions went well, on a shortened course, though getting crews boated and started and then landed to time was a bit of a struggle. Conditions were great with low wind and perfect water, plus sun, though whether crews ever got warmed up after sitting in the cold at the start we don't know. We don't think it went above freezing all day, so a big warm virtual hug to all crews who braved the elements.
