Captain's Log 05/02

6th February 2018

Racing results:

The senior squad 8+ came 21st out of 27 in IM3 at Quintin Head on Saturday 27th January in a time of 11.59.3. A solid row but we were barged way out of the stream by a very rude Maidstone crew overtaking past the clubhouse.

The Masters F crew were just under a minute behind in 12:57.6

Full Results on the Quintin Head website.

Boat notes / Safety note:

Old Blades is out of action after an altercation with a large metal buoy up between Brentford and Syon. No personal injuries other than a couple of bruised egos. The boat will be sent off for mending in due course.

A reminder to all steers that the set of the tide is quite strong at the moment, even on a green PLA flag. Do please take extra care around the long-standing static hazards on the river.

This week:

Tuesday erg: 3x5km UT2
Thursday erg: 5x1500m at 5k pace minus 1 second.
(Reminder - If you only do one erg, do the Thursday piece)

Weekend outings: Plan will be made Wednesday lunchtime. Get any last-minute tweaks submitted before then
