Easter Sunday crew in a blizzard
 
Several members gave up the chocolate eggs and warm houses on Easter Sunday morning to brave the blizzards and launch the boat for a chilly training session. It did get slightly less unpleasant later and a few people even reported having warm hands at some point - no-one knows how much truth there was in this though.
