Farewell to the Mountains
28th August 2017
News in brief:
A weekend of long miles, flat water and glorious sunshine by the river, and some coxing experience gains for Vasil, Tom, and Mustafa.
Time to hit the winter season running and push those base fitness levels up.
The weekend also saw a good-bye party for erstwhile Bar Steward, Killepitsch fiend, Jagerbomb pusher and occasional Cygnet rowing sub Katie Mountain (Cygnet racing record: P1, W1) and Cygnet club member Ian Mountain (race record: P lots, W3) as they head north to Cumbria. Best wishes for the future, and we look forward to arranging future training camps in the Lake District.
Friday evening - Cygnet end of season dinner. See Cris's email for details.
Saturday afternoon - Club Day - please sign up here so the social secretaries have a good idea of numbers: https://beta.doodle.
Fun sprint racing in mixed crews with BBLRC, BBQ and Beers in the sunshine
Further ahead at the end of October is the annual Henley Lunch. See http://www.cygnet-rc.org.
No more organised weeknight outings as the nights are drawing in. Any evening scullers should take lights. We're also looking to give the seniors and development squads experience of coxing and steering, so don't be surprised to find yourself in an unfamiliar seat on the outing plans. (Don't worry too much - we won't let you out unsupervised)
