We got to chatting about our rowing experiences this morning, and to recounting stories of our first efforts in the art of oarsmanship.
On this at least the oarsmen might agree: That just as 'beat your swords to ploughshares' states A precept kindlier than the harsh decree That drove them on, so when this yarn relates Their oarsmanship to harvest, or equates His strong-arm stuff to skilful husbandry, The truth of what that counter-myth narrates Lies in its georgic turn.
Younger competitors also got the chance to show off their oarsmanship in a 300 metre "mini regatta" that was open to children 13 years and under.
