Cygnet Weekly Update
20th September 2016
Cygnets one and all,
Bizeee weekend on and off the water.
Many thanks to Cris for organising our end of season dinner in the incomparable surroundings of the Coach and Horses. Congratulations to Scott for winning the JP Jefferies rower of the year and Alan Cox the Wally Wheddel club man award. Both well deserved. Scott has worked hard on and off the water in crew boats as well as in a single scull and in addition taken on the job of club boatman, fixing the wear and tear and dings and scratches that the rest of us put in the fleet. And Alan has given so much time out in the launch coaching us with good humour and enormous patience. Lets go out and win some pots for him soon.
On the Tideway we had 30 people rowing on Saturday morning. The learn to row Cygnets took their first tentative strokes and were doing something that was recognisably rowing by the end of the two outings. And good to see a fleet of small boats training for Pairs Head and Fours Head. It's good to see so many people out, let's maintain the momentum.
Pairs Head and Fours/Vet Head Fours Head are just around the corner. If you want to be in these events you need to be putting in the time on and off the water, most importantly we need consistent water outings. So can everyone get their availability up to date on the famous spreadsheet please.
Pairs Head - Volunteers are required for marshalling and launch driving. The event is run by Barnes Bridge so please help if you can and let Sue Cole know copying me in please.
