XLVI Deneb's Captain's Log
17th June 2019
I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend.
Good Races from the CYG 4+ (Anna, Tom, Eric, Rupert, Ashley) and the CYG 1x (Piguet) in Barnes Mortlake this Saturday - both crews lost against the winners of their respective events, but offered a good race. We can say that we brought luck to the opposition 😉 ... Unfortunately there are no shortcuts in this sport, we know what we need to do to improve so let's keep up the good work.
After a nice recovery session in small boats on Sunday we can look forward to Richmond Regatta
Please update your availability in https://www.fitclub.me, so we can plan the best racing combos. If you have any problems with fitclub please let me know.
New TIDEWAY CODE: The PLA launched an updated Code last week. Steerers, Coxes, please take a look.This is a must.
Boats/ Equipment: Just a gentle reminder, there are some checks to be done before and after every outing. Lists are in the changing room and in the boathouse and posted here
I understand that sometimes we come back tired from the outing but please don't forget the Post-Outings Check:
- Wash boat inside and out including runners
- Wash oars and replace in correct rack
- Report any boat damage (to the captaincy) and make and reports as required.
And this week is Henley Women's Regatta - All the best of Luck to Barnes Bridge Ladies !!!
