The Last Log
16th July 2018
It's been a busy year since the last captaincy election. The squad has had to weather the loss of Tim Male as head coach; big thanks to everyone who has stepped into the launch to help out during the year, particularly Kirsty, Alan and Gareth (in his single scull).
The meatwagon continued the regatta season where they left off last summer with wins at Chiswick, Borne and Richmond regattas; in each case the top tier of the 4+ events. Well done, and I hope there's still time for some final hurrahs before winter training takes over.
Big thanks to everyone who has stepped into the smallest seat during the year; particular thanks to Anna and Hannah for crossing the divide when their BBLRC duties have allowed it. Hopefully most of the squad have now had a go at steering/coxing under supervision; please consider taking the steering test and becoming accredited to help the club continue to field crews for training and racing.
Outings this week
Tuesday 7pm - plan TBC - Rupert, Kay, Julian, Henrik, Eric, Barry, Ashley
Thursday 7pm - 4x+ (Lambe) Barry, Henrik, Julian, Mustafa, coxed by Matt
Weekend outing plans to follow later in the week, as it's currently looking a little sparse (again) on fitclub, and racing plans also to come after the elections/impromptu squad meeting on Tuesday night. (After we find out whether there are any names on the board.)
