Dear Cygnets,

I hope everyone had a great weekend!

First of all Big Big Thank You and congratulations to all volunteers from both clubs (you know who you are). Incredibly good work both days: boating, parking, marshalling, driving launches and catering. No incidents and all crews were on the water ~10 min before racing start *claps, claps, claps* you were the heroes of the weekend.

Saturday HORR: Lovely conditions for the rowing sport, sunny, warm, nice water. Congratulations to the Cygnet 8+ (Anna, Henrik, Niall, Martin, Eric, Bjarne, Mustafa, Rupert, Tom) Well done! Good solid platform. There are videos and pics for the analysis. Let's keep up the good work, looking forward to the Regatta Season. CYG 8+ Time : 22:34.9

Sunday Vets Head: A little more windy and fresh than the day before; we had 1 Cygnet racing again (well done Martin) our friends from RG Benrath and two BBL crews. Congratulations all!
