    Dear Cygnets,

    I hope everyone is surviving the heat wave, please drink loads and don’t forget the sunscreen.

    Saturday was Richmond Regatta: Good races but unfortunately no wins; good platform from our Nov8+ against the senior crew from Sons of the Thames (winner of the event), they were simply stronger, Congratulations to James on his first Race.

    Our Nov 4+ also had  a good race against City of Cambridge (winner of the event) – but at the end it wasn’t to be. All crews lost against the winners of the events – so technically we were second! Let’s keep the good work to be first.

    Thank you very much Tom for driving the trailer, Anna for coxing and all of you who made the effort to come to the club to unload the trailer after a very long hot day. Please update availability to prepare well the next races.

    Safety:

    Failure to keep a proper lookout is the single biggest factor in collisions.

    If you row to Putney in the next Month be aware about the works at Fulham FC

    Don’t forget the new TIDEWAY CODE which was launched by the PLA last month. Steerers, Coxes, please take a look. This is a must.

    House Keeping:
    This Tuesday and Thursday we need to do some rigging- please try to be there 18.45.

    Boats/ Equipment: Don’t forget to do the Pre and Post outings checks. If there is something wrong please report it to the captaincy.

    Also this week we have been invited to the Annual Music Night in Hamhaugh Island (Saturday 6th of July) . All the islanders will come onto the green with their BBQs and there will be a band – might be a good plan to recover from Henley Friday
