Captain's Birthday Log 12/2

14th February 2018

Happy Birthday to Cygnet. 128 years young.

This week:

  • Tuesday erg: 3 x 5km UT2
  • Thursday erg: 30 mins rate 20
  • Thursday lecture: club historian Paul Rawkins is giving a talk on Cygnet RC to the Barnes History Society. 8pm at St Marys Church in Barnes.
  • Weekend: Final availability by Wednesday night please; outings at usual times (or thereabouts). Initially looks like Senior (ish) 8 Sat early, Novice 8 usual time, and a mixed bag of coxless boats Sunday early.

Further ahead:

25/2 Hammersmith Head - Novice 8

I can see 9 novices available for this: Kay, Joris, Mustafa, Eric, Tom, Magnus, Barry, Ashley, Rupert, and Becky to cox. Entries have to be in by Friday night, so can you all (or 8/9) please confirm back to me that you want to race before then and I'll get an entry put in. Training outings 10am Sat 17th and 24th, so do please make them if you can. (If you're not on the above list and want to race, also do let me know ...)

11/3 Head of the River - Senior 8

Crew is currently planned to line up as:

Niall, Sam, Nick R, Bjarne, Cris, Matt, Vasil, Alex. Cox TBC.

25/3 Veterans Head.

Anyone wanting to race Vets Head please fill in as available for the session on the fitclub. Initial plans was to race a novice 8 and the masters F crew. If we get three 8s wanting a race, we may be able to borrow a boat from another club, but that would need plenty of advance notice, so I'm going to set a deadline of Friday 23rd to show interest.

7/4-8/4 Spring Sculling Camp

In Shepperton, if we can find someone to tow the trailer there and back again. (Offers gratefully received). Otherwise we'll have to resort to a mass bungle-row.
