The snow melted and the wind abated just in time for weekend outings. Some decent paddling on flat water this weekend made a welcome change from the cancellation of Hammersmith Head the week before. Unfortunately the forecast is for more wind next weekend ...
Big congratulations and thanks to all those who were elected onto the Cygnet and Boathouse Exec committees over the last 2 weeks. The clubs literally couldn't run without their volunteers. The Captain Oates Award for perseverance in the face of adversity goes to Marj for heroically minuting both AGMs.
Thursday - Everyone - 2 x 1km at 5k pace. 4min rest. Nice and short, so no excuse for not mobilising properly beforehand ...
Tuesday - Non racers only - 3 x 5km UT2, 90s rest.
Heads Of The River Weekend, 10/11 March
No scheduled outings; do please come and cheer on BBL on Saturday and Cygnet on Sunday and join us in the bar afterwards for post-race banter and 6 nations rugby.
Still short of a launch driver for Sunday - let me know if you can help.
On a related note - if anyone has time for a launch fuel run this week before the heads, please could you do so and submit the bill to the club treasurer for reimbursement.
Veterans Head, 25th March
There are currently 4 people available on the fitclub, so as it stands there will be no novice 8 racing. Entries close at the end of the week, so I need to put the entry in by Thursday.
Sculling Camp, 7/8 April
Still looking for someone to tow the trailer down to Shepperton and back - please let me know if you can help. All you need is a trailer endorsement on your licence (B+E) and willingness to give it a go ... full moral support provided.
If anyone has "acquired" a "spare" short sleeve cygnet tech top, size L, from the miscellaneous/uncollected kit box over the last 18 months or so, please let me know, so I can reunite it with its owner
