    Dear Cygnets,

    I hope everyone is doing well.

    Saturday: We had our End of Season dinner. Thank you all attendees (BBL & CYG) and especially Rupert for organising. It was a great evening, nice waddle, food, drinks and awards... it finished as usual with some extra drinks in the club bar, for some maybe too many. Congratulations to Ross S (GP Jeffries Cup/ Rower of the year), James D. (Wally Wheldal Cup/ sportsmanship and endeavour of the year) and Anna, BBL of the year, for their well deserved awards.

    If you haven’t done it yet please fill in the following Questionnaire and more important, please UPDATE YOUR AVAILABILITY in https://www.fitclub.me/ for all the sessions – (including weights and ergs, so we can plan which of them are going to be coached) - cut off day for outings Tuesday!

    Dear Cygnets,

    I hope everyone is doing well.

    Sad news for the Cygnet Family: It is with great sadness that we report the death of Ian Stephenson (a.k.a. Geordie) who died on 30th August following a long and hard-fought battle with pancreatic cancer. Our thoughts are with his wife, Tracey and young son, George.

    Saturday
    We celebrated Club day. Thanks to all of you who came down and made it possible (attendees, volunteers, coxes). Many thanks to Hannah for organising the races and the “pots”, Rupert for sorting food and Mustafa for the drinks/cocktails. Fantastic afternoon with side by side rowing, capsize (swimming), RNLI visit and BBQ. Congratulations to the winners of the day Mustafa (1x, tough conditions for “singling”), Anna’s VIII (you know who you are) and Bec for the best cake.
