Cygnet Weekly Update

12th September 2016

It's been a busy few days, with Sculling Camp, LTR and the Squad Meeting last Thursday.

The mood of the squad meeting was that people want to see more settled crews and commit more to make the improvements to technique and fitness to achieve better results in races. From the poll we know who wants to row in each head race and the level of commitment they can make. We will be grouping crews based on experience and commitment so those who can commit row as far as possible with the same guys. To make this happen can I ask that everyone who want to race in either pairs head or 4/Vet Fours Head completes there availability on the spreadsheet from now till 4s Head weekend as a minimum including weekends and weekdays.

Another good session in the LTR course on Saturday, getting reading for theiir first water outing on Saturday. Alan will coach and I'll cox but we'll need to have 2 boat sitters from our experienced rowers please check the sheet and volunteer if you can. Now we are going out on the river we need all the LTR guys to confirm their availability so we know how many people will be going in a boat and how if we have one or two outings to give you all time on the water.

Sculling Camp went well, one day rain, one day glorious sunshine. Well done to AJ and Bjarne for how they stuck at it and got substantial water time. We will organise beginners sculling pods back at base when the conditions are right to keep you progressing.
