Cygnet Weekly Update 23rd November
24th November 2015
High seas on the Tideway on Saturday kept us on dry land, well done to those who made it down to do an erg as well as everyone who did Thursday's 50min erg.
The MAG 8+ was out on Sunday with our new recruits getting more rowing miles under their belts and getting used to the cold. And the Sculling Pod made it down the full course to get used to the pain they'll go through in a couple of weeks in Scullers Head and learn where the PLA have put their buoys.
Tuesday: Circuits with Maxi, 7:15 at Cavendish School Edensor Road. Let's keep the good attendance going and keep building the fitness for the Barnes Bridge Christmas Ball. Please remember to bring a towel and some water.
Thursday: 7pm Squad Erg: 4 x 5 mins at target 5k pace, maintain throughout and have 10 min warm up & down. A breeze after last week. Sign up for food with Bart after the erg ( BdG@gmx.net)
Weekend: Looks like we have good availability both days, if you're availability isn't up to date please get online and update it so I can put you in a boat at the weekend. To fit in with the tide times and give the scullers a chance to get out on quieter water the squad outings will be at 8am both days.
5th December 11am Scullers Head with 6 Cygnet and 6 BBL scullers entered. Everyone of them will greatly appreciate a cheer from the bridge or the club.
20th December (probably) Plum Pudding Race which is a great chance to give people of first taste of race like rowing with a festive flavour. Can you let me know if you'd like to row in it.
Unfortunately Scott L had his car broken into last Thursday. It happens to us and other local clubs , the club is isolated and the parked cars can be easy pickings for the local oiks. Best plan is not to drive to the club, next best is to leave you car on the Barnes side and walk across the bridge, if you have no option, please make sure there is nothing on show in your car.
Have a good week, see you Thursday
