This is what the ladies number 5 Oar looks like. I am in contact with Sutton to find out what they advise with this as it is a break along the laminate join. Then I will get it fixed as soon as possible.
Brilliant thanks all - we noticed last night a split in number 4 oar that if knocked could break - Aisling is hoping to fix. That must have happened at Swanage last weekend when there was a clash in one of the mens races. The ladies oars have always seemed very fragile and can't cope with close combat - we really need a rethink on usage.
