    Launch driving
    If you are free to drive the club launch for Quintin Head on 27/1, Women's Head on 10/3, Eights Head on 11/3, or Vets Head on 25/3, please let me know. No prior experience or qualifications strictly necessary.

    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.

  • Captain's Yuletide Log

    Author: Neil Pickford | Date: 3rd January 2018

    News:

    Congratulations to Robin and Miranda Harries on the arrival of their new daughter over the festive break. Best wishes from all at Cygnet.

    For those who missed the SGM before Christmas, the club agreed to purchase a new Janousek 4x/4-. Please send any naming suggestions to Marjorie.

    This week:

    Training as per the plan.

    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.

    Subs:

    Annual subscriptions are now due:

    290 for CSSC members.
    360 for everyone else.

    Thanks to those who have already paid up.
