Captain's Log 01/10
2nd October 2017
Quiet morning on some lovely flat water today, reports coming in of a busy morning on some bumpy stuff yesterday. Keep putting in the miles and we'll reap the rewards come race time.
Next weekend sees a small contingent head off to visit our friends at Ruder-Gesellschaft Benrath for some Altbier and Killepitsch drinking, as well as a short* paddle** down the Rhine on Saturday morning. Looking forward to an evening Waddle around the Altstadt post-paddling.
2 Cygnet quads have been selected for the paddle (BDF, Wylie, Nick R, and your correspondent vs Cris, Marj, Neil, and Sue) and there's also an Elite Veteran 4x from BBLRC for us to try to keep pace with.
The following weekend sees the Pairs' Head of the River, with 2.5 Cygnet crews entered - Bart & Gav in MasB2-, Chris and Tony in MasH2x, and finally Neil J and Otters from Auriol Kensington, also in MasH2x.
Keep an eye out for the calls for volunteers to help with the upcoming head races - we'll need some hands to push off boats, herd trailers, and hold megaphones so the events can run smoothly.
