Training News and Term Plan It was very heartening to see crews out working hard for every session this weekend; lets make sure we nail the training up to the big March Heads for optimal results.
Final availabilities for this weekend by 8pm Tuesday please.
The general plan for this term is:
Sat 27/1/18 11.30 Quintin Head (4km) - Seniors & Vets 8s entered. Sun 25/2/18 11.00 Hammersmith Head (4km) - would like to get a novice 8+ together for this and maybe the Vets 8 as well. If the vets aren't racing then the seniors get another race chance. Sun 11/3/18 10:45 Eights Head (7km) - Want to get 2 eights entered - 1 Seniors and 1 Novices Sun 25/3/18 10:00 Veterans Eights Head (7km) - Vets 8 plus anyone else from the other squads who fancies a race.

Senior crew: Cris, Alex F, Eric, Matt, Niall, Ian S, Vasil, Sam, Gigi Vets Crew: Andy, Jez, Nick W, Rhodri, Iain G, Mike (TSS), Lawrence (TSS), Paul.
This week Monday off
Tuesday weights Wednesday 5 x 1500m erg, 3 min rest. at 5k pace -0.5s Thursday weights Friday off Saturday 8am Quintin crew and other seniors outing. Saturday 10am Quintin crew and novice outing coached by Alan Sunday 8am, 10am - more outings
Please load availabilities for at least the rest of January onto Fitclub, or ideally through to Easter if you can, so the captaincy can work out how the race crews are likely to stack up. (Not set in stone; things do change along the way)
Final availability for the weekend by Wednesday night please; current numbers are 4,6,1,3 which doesn't bode well for much in the way of outings. I'd like to have a squad meeting at some point on Saturday morning as well.
For the new LTR chaps - I'd like to keep your focus on Saturday 10am outings, but do sign up for any of the others and we'll try to get you out in boats where we can.
Well done to all who raced; some solid results off what wasn't a huge amount of training for some of you.
Monday: erg 3 x 6km UT2 Wednesday: erg TBC
