A short run of 20 minutes or so got me down to Premia de Mar and the Club Nautic. There I rowed in the eight-man llagut, a type of traditional Catalan rowing boat. The crew consisted mostly of novices but it was nice to get out and row. It was a 45 minute row and it was enough to get the muscles in the arms and back working. Even though this is fixed-seat rowing it surprising how hard the upper legs work.
For most of the outing we stayed inside the harbour but we did go outside for a while and rowed parallel to the beach. There was little wind and the sea had only an easy swell.
