XLV Deneb's Captain's Log

12th June 2019

Dear Cygnets,

I hope everyone had nice weekend.

Great Sculling Camp in the Bungalow in Hamhaugh Island, this time with any major incident! Loads of Sculling, swimming (voluntary/involuntary), BBQ (fire under control), loads of fun,... a little windy on Saturday but dream conditions on Sunday; looking forward to September.

Thank you to all attendees and helpers, loading and unloading the trailer (you know who you are), Alan for coaching; also many thanks to Tom for driving the trailer and Anna for sorting the food. Thank you very much!

Also nice to hear that Gavin and Bart two "Old Blades" were down for paddle on Saturday after their have recently become fathers for the first time. Welcome to the Cygnet Family Mateo (Gavin) and Max (Bart).

On another thing - River is quite filthy, please take extra care, wash boats, hands, drink bottles , no open wounds in the water (normal procedure but it's always good to remember)
