We attended the MPM event in Holland again this year. It’s a series of 3 long (~40min) races from the Dutch village of Muiden, around the historic fort of Pampus and back to Muiden. 12 gigs took part alongside 100+ other rowing craft including 12 man lifeboats, sloops and whalers.
It’s quite an event and last year we won the “Spirit of MPM” trophy. This year though, we won the mens gig trophy and had great performances from all rowers, both on and “off” the water. An amazing weekend and huge thanks have to go out to the organisers and towers especially Marianne and David, Bridget and Pete, Clare and Pete.
