Cygnet Weekly Update
4th July 2016
Just a great afternoon at Old Blades on Friday of Henley Royal Regatta. The rain fell in the morning and the afternoon stayed dry and finally we were blessed with late afternoon sunshine, Pimms flowed all day, lunch was top notch and every so often a couple of boats would flash and splash past. Sensible folk knowing their limits left and made the trip back to town, younger, less experienced chaps carried on till the wee small hours and paid a heavy price come Saturday morning. Massive thanks to Pat Sly for one again hosting us at an incomparable venue.
Saturday was bright and breezy for outings, some rowers not so bright and breezy. We got a 4 x, 4- and 2- on the water, thanks to Alan for the coaching. Sunday a 4x and various scullers were out working hard.
Kingston Regatta is this Saturday. We have a Nov 4+ entered - Claudia, Jez, Scott, Patrick, Cris, good luck to them, I will put out the race times when announced.
Further ahead on the 23/24th July St Neots Regatta. Signed up so far we have: Jez, Matt, Robin, Cris, Nick R, Tom B, Scott. We will speak to BBL about mixed crews as well as entering Cygnet crews to try to get everyone two races. We could do with a few more of our finely honed athletes signing up, but we need to get crews sorted out in the next week. Don't miss out on the most fun regatta and party of the season!!!
Henley T&V the week after another good regatta at an iconic venue. Please sign up if you can make it...
We are short of a steersman for both Tuesday and Thursday to get everyone on the water. Anyone available to help?
