We have had a break in at the boathouse over night (Thursday/Friday). Cash and a few small bits were taken from inside but apparently nothing much else. However, more seriously, the trailer towing vehicle was also taken. The police are looking into the matter and the boathouse captain, with assistance from other club members, is organising repairs. Emanuel School boathouse was also targeted.
It's not the first time and doubtless won't be the last but members are reminded to avoid keeping valuables at the the boathouse, were possible and to also challenge or report anyone acting suspiciously in the vicinity of the boathouse.
Most of the other Tideway clubs have been quickly notified through the power of social media.

Happy Birthday to us, happy birthday to us...
Cygnet RC is 130 years old today. Obviously we're going out to celebrate this evening with a few birthday drinkies in YWH and everyone is welcome.
Find out more about the last 130 years here Cygnet History and here Historic Photo Archive or if you prefer your information in a more traditional format there are still copies of the Cygnet History Book available from Paul Rawkins

Rounding off 2019 and the twenty-teens for Cygnet, what a year, what a decade.
Our top nine for the year tell the story well, plenty of rowing, lots of friends, an erg or two and some great times both on and off the water. This is why we row. Thanks to all our tideway friends and especially @bblrc who've helped us and shared in the memories this year.
Looking forward to a bigger, better, stronger 2020 - who knows where the next decade will take us. 2020 is a big year for Cygnet with big anniversaries for the club, boathouse and bungalow so we're expecting an action packed 12 months in boats and on dry land.
Wishing one and all a very Happy New Year and the very best that 2020 might bring. May your waters be calm, your boat set and your glass be ever full.
