    Author: Neil Pickford | Date: 27th September 2017

    If anyone fancies this, Paul Rawkins is already book-in.


    Hope you’re well and that the rowing season is getting off to a good start!I’m just getting in touch from the River & Rowing Museum to let you and Cygnet Rowing Club know about our exciting Rowing History event here in November.

    ‘Backsplash: The Rowing History Conference’ is going to take place on 3rd & 4th November and we’re looking forward to welcoming Daniel James Brown, author of the New York Times bestseller ‘The Boys in the Boat’ as our keynote speaker.

    Other confirmed speakers include: Andrew Triggs Hodge, triple Olympic gold medallist rower; Mike Spracklen, international rowing coach; Colleen Orsmond, Olympic rower, Rowing Event Manager at Rio 2016 and World Rowing’s Sport Director; Peter Mallory, coach, published author and rowing historian; Jeremy Randall, Leander Club President and former Master of the Company of Watermen; and Lisa Taylor, rowing history PhD student at Manchester Metropolitan University and the River & Rowing Museum.

    I hope this sound of interest! Further information and booking details can be found on the event webpage: rrm.co.uk/backsplash
    Various ticketing options are available including: whole conference packages, single-day or dinner only tickets and tickets for Daniel James Brown’s talk only.

    Since this event may well be of interest to others at Cygnet Rowing Club, I’m wondering if you might able to spread the word and let your rowers know about this event?
    If so, that would be brilliant! We’ve created an event poster that you can share by email, facebook or even print out and pin onto a club noticeboard: backsplash.link/poster

    Anyway, any and all help will be much appreciated!
    Look forward to hearing from you, and hope to see you at the conference in November.

    Kind Regards

  • Coach required

    Author: Matt Byrne | Date: 14th August 2017

    Cygnet Rowing Club is looking to recruit a head coach for the 2017-18 season.

    The head coach will have responsibility for devising the club's training plan to include comprehensive land and water sessions, and coaching weekend outings for the main squad of 24-30 athletes. In collaboration with the club captain, to select crews for races and training outings.

    Outing windows are from 7am - 1pm Saturdays and Sundays; the athletes are encouraged to undertake double sessions where possible, and up to 3 weeknight land training sessions.

    Currently, the majority of the squad are at novice & intermediate 3 level and over 80% have learned to row at the club. In 2016-17, the Novice "A" 4+ achieved 3 wins after a couple of early losses in finals, and the Novice "B" 4+ made a couple of finals and pushed hard only to lose out at the last. The club also enjoyed a couple of 1x wins and is looking to develop the sculling abilities of the squad members.

    Ambitions for the 2017-18 season are to develop the top end of the squad through IM2/IM1 level and to get an 8+ to Henley.
