We will board in the afternoon and start our adventure with an accommodation period of 3-4 hours on the Limanu lake. It’ll be enough time for you to setup your rowing position, to adapt from erg rowing to the boat’s oars and also get an “orientation” session: the overall feel of the life on board, walking on the deck along your fellows while they row, get a crash course on navigation and boat steering, refreshing the rowing routines and identifying the critical equipment and gear on board.
Afterwards we head towards the open sea, into the sunrise – a spectacular show that we will admire from several miles off-shore. The waves patterns will change and now you’ll have the opportunity to truly understand what open water rowing means.
The exposure to the difference in temperature from day to night may accelerate the feelings of fatigue, disorientation, exhaustion. It will also give you time to think, to analyse your emotions and feelings, to put your objectives in perspective.
There’ll be time for swimming and for admiring the sunset into the sea – provided you put the energy into the oars to take the boat further enough.
Interaction with the other members of the crew is important, so don’t hesitate to provide feedback and ask for it; all these while you keep an eye on the others on deck, to make sure they’re safe – and they’ll do the same.
