Patricia Carswell, a.k.a. Girl on the River, is a freelance journalist  specialising in health, family and lifestyle. She’s also a rower who has rapidly developed a burning passion for a sport that doesn’t always love her back. You can read more about her journey from couch potato to obsessed rower here. She has strong views on rowing fashion (and especially all-in-ones) and is very afraid of the Little People hiding along the River Wye.

It doesn’t take much to make Girl on the River happy. A glass of something red and alcoholic will usually do the trick, or a good outing on the river. Oh, and a bit of flattery is always welcome.

    email me at carolyn@carolynboddington.com there are a few people who are in the state system who may be able to help you. Have you contacted Ann Richardson from Explore Rowing? She may be able to help with equipment.
