Racing Post
No wins at Henley Town, but a good day out was had by all, despite the rain.
Also a belated well done to Ian S on his 1:27.26 in the Sprint distance at the London Triathlon last weekend, 425th/2283

Safety Note
Unfortunately, the "number of days since a Cygnet boat hit a bridge" counter had to be reset to zero yesterday, we'd nearly got to 3570. The Alan Cox is therefore out of action for the forseeable until he's been to the menders.

In unrelated news, the "number of days since Stu steered into a bridge" counter has also been set back to zero from somewhere around 3570 ... welcome back to the Tideway, Stu. The captaincy plans to ask the PLA to paint Barnes Bridge in a fluorescent shade of yellow to make it easier to spot.

Please get the availability up to Oxford on 20th August into the system by close of play on Monday .This in case Tim is available to coach during the week. (Needless to say, we'll need Tues/Weds/Thurs availability for everyone to make outings work ...) 

Race Plans
So far for Peterborough Regatta 12/13 Aug I have: Robin, Ian, Scott, Sam. Anyone else in the senior squad want to race this? Last call for entries.

So far for Oxford Regatta 19/20 Aug from the spreadsheet I have: Jon, Ashley, Mark, Jim, Kay, Eric, Tom, Mustafa, Niall, Cris, Jez, Vasil, Charlie, Me. Please can you all confirm that you definitely want to race, and anyone not listed above who wants to race should let me know and update the spreadsheet. Anyone who can't (or won't) do both days to race please also let me know. Entries have to go in this week. If you haven't already, you'll need to join British Rowing and get gold membership in order to race. 

We're also trialling a new web-based availability system for August, so please have a look at http://www.fitclub.me/club/dashboard?clubId=15 to create an account and request to join Cygnet RC. All the training sessions are loaded into the Cygnet calendar and it looks like a simpler system to update and change on phones than googledocs.
