Captain's Log: Issue 6
20th September 2021
Good Afternoon Cygnets, this is your Captain Speaking
Great to get the season underway this week with our squad meeting on Tuesday, really great to see so many familiar faces as we set out the plans for the season ahead. A big thank you to Beth for preparing us so well with the plan looking ahead to the aim of the season - Head of the River Race (HORR) on 26th March 2022. Thank you to all those who attended.
I have summarised the plan and all that we discussed at the meeting in the attached document [removed. Contact rupert direct for a copy – Ed.], for those joining the squad for the season, have a good read, so you can have a good sense of the plan and schedule from here through to March. If you did not attend Tuesday's meeting but would like to sign up to the squad, please contact me directly.
Scullers Head - tomorrow
Very best of luck to our racing crews: Cris (175), Mustafa (294), Andy (300) and Pete (307), we will be cheering you on from shores and wishing you all the best on race day tomorrow.
If you are available, please do sign up and lend a hand - as usual we will be hosting a huge number of clubs and could really do with your help to ensure our head race hosting gets off to the best possible start.
Pairs Head - 2nd Oct
Our 'Home Race' organised by BBL is just around the corner. Again it will be all hands on deck to help with the Race and Hosting.On Tuesday we announced our racing crews for the Pairs Head Race:
- Boat A: Dom M & Cris C
- Boat B: Andy S & Mustafa

Great to see so many of you at the bungalow this weekend and a huge huge thank you to everyone involved, who helped out during the weekend and loading and unloading the trailer - it couldn't have happened without you and special thanks to Martin and Megan for all the organising. I think all had an excellent time on the calmer waters with plenty of time afloat and socialising on the lawn - living up to its status as a highlight of the Cygnet calendar.
Training this week:
With availbility limited this weekend, there will be an outing on Sunday only and land training will be ergs Monday and Wednesday in the shed (S&C will commence on Monday 27th). Please make sure you sign up for next weekend before the Tuesday deadline and let's all make an effort to get back to full squad outings please.
