Fire and water

Five Argo competition rowing eights accompanied the liberation flame on 5 May.

The flame was brought from Arnhem to Wageningen by youth team rowers. In Wageningen sprinters took over the torch, which the Prime Minister Mark Rutte then used to light the flame in the market square, marking the opening of the liberation festival. Five Argonauts got to meet the Prime Minister later in the day.
