Cygnet Weekly Update
23rd August 2016
Wild day on the river on Saturday with unseasonably strong winds. Still there was good solid sculling training by those who were out plus the very welcome return of James to boat and his first taste of sculling. More to come at sculling camp on the 10/11 September.
No more races now until Pairs Head in October so its time to plan the training and crews for autumn. Thanks to those who have filled in the poll, for those who haven't yet, it only takes a couple of minutes and will be a big help in putting plans together. Cygnet Autumn Poll. Please put the squad meeting on the 8th September in your diary, after boat loading for Sculling Camp.
Learn to Row starts in less than two weeks. I am still looking for volunteer coaches and helpers to cover all the sessions. The water sessions will need lot of support, coach, cox, two boat sitters and someone to do land training if we have as expected two 8s going out one after the other. Go to the LTR page of the famous spreadsheet to sign up.
And Scamp is fast approaching on the 9/10/11th September. We'll load the boats on Thursday 8th Sept before the squad meeting, we will need volunteers to meet the trailer at Weybridge Ladies on Friday evening to get the boats across to the bungalow.
This weeks outings:
Nick R, Scott, AJ, Ben, Big John
Sorry no steersman amongst you so it will have to be land training unless a steer comes forward. So its 30 min feet out rate 20 ergo, please record times on the sheet
4x Vasil, AJ, Ben, Jez
Guy, the sun sets at 8 so we need to be on the water by 7 at the latest so make a special effort to get down early.
See you at the club soon, enjoy the heatwave whilst it lasts
