    Ladies and Gentlemen of the class of 2018, Wear Sunscreen. If I could offer you only one tip for the future, Sunscreen would be it.

    After the snows and winds of March, and the cancellation of sculling camp due to red boards (now just about off yellows, two weeks later) the sun has made a long-overdue appearance this week. The novice and intermediate squads have enjoyed some evening outings over the last couple of weeks in varying combinations to prepare for the start of the regatta season which kicks off at Hammersmith Regatta on 28th April. If you're not racing, head up to the Blue Anchor (or the AK bar) and support the team. Draw out early next week.

    for the diary:

    28/4 Hammersmith Regatta

    5/5 Chiswick Regatta

    12/5 Boat Naming, Borne Regatta, and BBQ (more details in next week's update)

  • Captain's Easter Log

    Author: Neil Pickford | Date: 6th April 2018

    [Easter Egg surely? It's Yule Log Ed]

    Hope everyone had a good Easter. To work off the eggs, this week's erg is 6 x 750m at 2k pace. If you want to do a second erg, then 3 x 5km UT2.

    This week:

    Thursday - squad meeting 7pm for everyone wanting to race this summer, followed by boat loading for sculling camp.

    Saturday/Sunday - Sculling Camp at The Bungalow. No organised Tideway outings.

    Sign up here to make sure we get enough food in: https://doodle.com/poll/4i9hanf269ryvtrh

    The Thames is currently on red boards, so we're watching the EA website and hoping for at least a drop to yellows by Friday. If we have to call it off due to river conditions, then it'll be show and row at the boathouse at the usual times instead.

    Race News:

    A weekend full of exceptional racing and strong performances.

    Cambridge served up a generous appetiser with a 4-0 drubbing of Oxford on the Saturday, before the main course of the Vets Head on Sunday. The peak performance of the day from the Cygnet Masters "E" crew finishing 19/29 in category just a few seconds behind our friends from Rudergesellschaft Benrath.

    Thanks from Warsaw RC to Sam for being a last minute supersub.

    I hope many beers were sunk in the bar over the weekend; haven't had any reports back yet, so assuming it was business as usual.

    This week:

    Thursday erg: 6 x 500m at 2k pace, followed by dinner (and/or pub)

    Saturday/Sunday - outings dependent on availability; 8pm Wednesday cutoff on fitclub.

    With the lighter evenings now, seniors should consider boat lights if you're taking out a club boat after work during April.

    Next week:

    Thursday night - squad meeting and boat loading for Sculling Camp

    Sat/Sun 7/8 April - Sculling Camp at Shepperton.

    Look out for the main Scamp email later this week. In the meantime - please sign up here to give me an indication of numbers. (WAGs & HABs and other family members also welcome to hang out at the bungalow)
