    Dear Cygnets,

    I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend.

    Good Races from the CYG 4+ (Anna, Tom, Eric, Rupert, Ashley) and the CYG 1x (Piguet) in Barnes Mortlake this Saturday – both crews lost against the winners of their respective events, but offered a good race. We can say that we brought luck to the opposition 😉 … Unfortunately there are no shortcuts in this sport, we know what we need to do to improve so let’s keep up the good work.

    After a nice recovery session in small boats on Sunday we can look forward to Richmond Regatta

    Please update your availability in https://www.fitclub.me, so we can plan the best racing combos. If you have any problems with fitclub please let me know.

    Dear Cygnets,

    I hope everyone had nice weekend.

    Great Sculling Camp in the Bungalow in Hamhaugh Island, this time with any major incident! Loads of Sculling, swimming (voluntary/involuntary), BBQ (fire under control), loads of fun,… a little windy on Saturday but dream conditions on Sunday; looking forward to September.

    Thank you to all attendees and helpers, loading and unloading the trailer (you know who you are), Alan for coaching; also many thanks to Tom for driving the trailer and Anna for sorting the food. Thank you very much!

    Also nice to hear that Gavin and Bart two “Old Blades” were down for paddle on Saturday after their have recently become fathers for the first time. Welcome to the Cygnet Family Mateo (Gavin) and Max (Bart).

    On another thing – River is quite filthy, please take extra care, wash boats, hands, drink bottles , no open wounds in the water (normal procedure but it’s always good to remember)
