Heads Together and Row: A quarter of the race to go!

<>National Squirrel Appreciation Day

After a quiet few days weather-wise over the weekend, which made rowing slow and tough-going, the team said the forecast seemed to suggest they would enjoy the benefits of better winds during the first half of this week, and then stronger winds for the second half.

Toby also said the moon had been 'gloriously bright' in the lead up to the Super Moon, which makes night rowing far more enjoyable.

We couldn't let #NationalSquirrelAppreciationDay go by without showing some love for Rufus, the Henley squirrel and official mascot of the Heads Together and Row team (pictured below with Toby earlier in the race).

We hope he gets the day off today. The things he must have seen...
