Cygnet Weekly Update
22nd November 2016
It was an awesome weekend on the lumpy river with all our entrants for Scullers Head out training together accompanied by a fleet of small boats which gave good steering practice to Tom, Sam and Bjarne. First time in a pair for Scott. And Scott manned up to go out in a single for the race pace session with the other scullers in the second outing. It's been really excellent to get the scullers together as a pod, working off each other and getting Tim's feedback to improve our sculling. It certainly got the competitive juices flowing before the race. Bring it on.
So Scullers Head is this Saturday at 13:30, raced down river to Putney as usual. We have six entrants (seven if we can count Tim):
- 73 Bart (Mas B)
- 218 Tim (Mas B)
- 244 Guy (Mas C)
- 465 Jez (Mas E)
- 529 Robin (Mas Nov A)
- 532 BDF (Mas Nov B)
- 533 Cris (Mas Nov B)
Please come down and cheer and enjoy the spectacle. Matt is running the book on the Cygnet finish order...
Further ahead, Quintin Plum Puddings (a festive race like mini head race) is taking place on Sunday 18th December. This is a great opportunity for our novices to get their first race like experience without it being anything too serious. In previous years we've put together two mixed crews of experienced and novices rowers, which gives a bit of intra club spice so we plan to do the same this year. Can you sign up if you want to take part by putting "PP" on the availability sheet for the 18th Dec asap.
Tuesday 7:15pm Circuits with Maxi at Cavendish School. We all loved the 200 lunges 200 burpees finisher last week, how can we top that this week?
