Captain's Log 22/01

24th January 2018

Another solid weekend of training under the belts, and the Quintin Head crews got some valuable water time with minimal substitutions required.

This week:

Mon off
Tue weights
Wed erg 30 mins rate 20.
Thu weights
Fri off

Weekend plan:

Saturday - Quintin Head race - IM3 crew meet 0830 for pre-paddle at 0900
[Cris, Alex F, Eric, Matt, Niall, Ian S, Vasil, Sam, Gigi]

No other outings planned, but please give us a cheer in the race if you're in the area, and I'm reliably informed that some of the racers are planning to recount their exploits in the bar afterwards. Race start is 11.30; the IM3 crew is going off 90th and the Masters "F" crew at 121. BBLRC have crews at 195 and 212.

Sunday - outings 7.45 and 10.00. Alan will be down to coach the second one if we get enough of the novice squad signed up to it ... selection deadline is Thursday night.

Next week:

Switch-around for weeknight land training for the rest of term. Weights priority nights will now be Mon/Wed and ergs priority Tues/Thurs, with Thursdays being the focus for squad erging (and post-training dinner - see weekly emails from Cris for details).

Further Ahead:

Sunday 25th Feb - Hammersmith Head - target race for Novice squad - please get advance availabilities into the system up to the end of Feb so the captaincy can see if there's a viable crew for the race. (Can sign up for all outings, but focussing on the 10am sessions both days of the weekend to get coaching)

Sunday 11th March - Head Of The River - target race for Intermediate squad
Sunday 25th March - Vets Head - target race for the Vets squad
