26th February 2019

Dear Cygnets,

I hope everyone had a fantastic "Spring" weekend!

Good rowing, on Saturday (I heard) first a 8+ with 7 rowing worked hard; next outing another 8+ with only 7 rowing had a technical outing in lovely sunshine. Thanks to our coxes, Laurent and Rupert. On Sunday (I heard this as well) a 4- and two singles went out. Good work was done in 4- , pieces , balancing pauses
and a few meters freestyle 😉 for some of the singles. Thank you Matt for steering.

Thank you all who made it to the AGM, sorry I missed it. Congratulations to all elected Committee members!!!
