Cambridge has a new Rowing Club.......

The Charles Darwin Rowing Club, to be precise. (Motto: "Survival of the fittest")

To be a member of this exclusive club, you have to be female, in a single scull, and on the river Cam heedless of strong stream warnings.

To qualify for membership, you have to take your boat out in the aforesaid atrocious conditions, spin at Baits Bight lock so late that you end up all over the weir boom, then fall in the water and get swept under the sluices.

You must then extract yourself from the water and walk nonchalently back to Cambridge leaving your empty boat against the weir to cause as much alarm as possible.

Rowers, eh?
