Captain's Log: Issue 7
20th September 2021
Hello Cygnets, this is your Captain Speaking
Basking in beautiful sunshine we had a splendid start to heads season with a successful boating operation and great showing by Pete, Mustafa, Andy and Cris on the water – well done to each of you – some impressive race times recorded down the course for Cygnet and two first-timers rowing over the championship course, great effort all round Cygnets! Enjoy the photos.
A huge thank you to Henrik, Jim, Martin and everyone who helped get the 70+ crews safely parked and on and off the water for the race, really great that so many of you were there to help out – these races cannot happen without your help and support, so thank you to everyone who did the organising and lending a hand throughout the day: Thank you all!!
Next stop Pairs Head Sat 2nd Sept – details will follow from Henrik this week. Please look out and sign up.
Please sign up by Wednesday for the steering test next weekend (25th Sept) if you have not yet done so – I expect to see a few more names before the deadline. If you are unsure whether you need to do it, please contact me directly.
Training this week
Get signed up on Fitclub for our two squad ergs this week: MON (great to see those of you who made it down this evening) and WEDS. Full details of the workouts are on fitclub too.
The deadline for signing up for weekend outings is Tuesday – let’s get as much of the squad on the water this coming weekend as possible please.
Strength and Conditioning training with Charlie will restart next Monday.
Plan for the season
As per my last message, please find attached the training schedule and plan for the season, please do read and digest it. The attached version is updated and reflects the slightly earlier Sunday outing time – please take note – it now correctly aligns with Fitclub.
The races for the season are on fitclub, please start thinking and getting signed up for the races you want to enter/are interested in, especially Fours/Vets Fours Head (entries open two weeks today - we will need your availability before then).
As usual any queries or questions let me or one of the Captains know.
Have a good week.
