Cygnet update 13th October

13th October 2015

The competitive action at the weekend was Pairs Head where we had 3 crews competing. We all love Pairs Head because a) it's run by Barnes Bridge Ladies, b) it's only to Hammersmith c) it's in October not December through March. This year they made us row further and a stiff headwind made it a longer race, but it was enjoyable on a fine autumn day. Results Dave and Nick (MasB 2-) 15:38.5 162 overall and 3rd in catergory, Alfonso/Jez 17:04, 374 overall, 12th in category, Cris/Charlie 17:18.1 393 overall, 7th in category. 

Thanks to all who helped with parking, boating, marshaling, eating cakes & hot dogs and drink in the bar afterwards. 

Of no less significance Saturday and Sunday saw the first water outings for the GFAR guys. 5 separate 8s got out on the water and before long the coaches had them rowing all 8. They was no shortage of promises and enthusiasm, very positive after the outings, all keen to get out and do more. Thanks for all those who took a turn at boat sitting. There will be more of that to come over the next few weeks till they become self sufficient. The GFAR officially ends after next weekend and we will be inviting them to join the club. Once the course is over it will be down to Cygnets to organise them and get them on the river with coaches and coxes etc.

This week:

Tuesday 7:15 Circuits with Maxi at Cavendish School

Thursday 7 Squad Erg ( erg TBC)


Fours Head is only 3 1/2 weeks away (7/8th Nov) and is the priority. I've had a few replies from those wanting to race, any more people interested let me know asap so we can plan outings and crews.Please fill in the spreadsheet for availability please.

All those interested in Scullers Head and outings in sculling pods put that on the sheet two so we can fix up the best time for them.GFAR on the water again, if we need more volunteers I'll put out another appeal,
