The president invites - Rotaract goes rowing

sabato 4 settembre 2021

The tradition says that, every year, the new President of the club must organise the first event of the new Rotarian year. This year’s president, Michele, decided to organise an introductory course to rowing at the Ruderclub Wohlensee.

The day started with a delicious breakfast at the Restaurant & Bar Lago where the manager, Claudio, took the greatest care of us.

Considering the presence of guests from other clubs, this was a good opportunity to get to know each other. Of course, Rotalove is always in the air. Here, everyone is Habibi.

At the Ruderclub Wohlensee, we could discover the structure of a boat and the basic movements of rowing on an ergometer. After a quick warm up, we could go on water and start the race!

Everyone had fun and came back alive, dry, and in one piece at the deck. That was an achievement.

Michele likes to walk and he is an old romantic. So, if you are in Bern for the first time, be ready to go down and uphill and to walk a lot. But be sure that it will be worth it. You haven’t seen Bern if you haven’t had a sunset at Rosengarten.

Thanks to everyone for being such wonderful, amazing, and unique friends.
