I hope everyone is doing well.
Greetings everyone and thank you to all of you who made it to the virtual OGM last week, a first in Cygnet's history, and voted for the captaincy for the next year: Sam Sears (Deputy Captain), Martin Drage (Vice Captain) and myself (Captain). Thank you very much, it is a great great Honour. Many thanks to Tom B for the fantastic hard work as Vice Captain during the last two years.
So little by little we start moving things, first coached sessions on the water. As mentioned in the previous email, Training sessions for the next weeks are now in https://www.fitclub.me/user/calendar/year Please update your availability to plan best – There are limited spaces – we will try to be as fair as possible and get the most of you on the water as we can. Main Objective at this stage is to have fun and get little by little into the rhythm.
I would also encourage everyone to do the steering test, it is a good time to do so. If you are interested, please let Charlie and myself know. You need to read the Tideway Code first.
This Week ( Technical sessions for Senior):
Boat allocation for this evening 19:00 and this Saturday 8:00 have been circulated by email.
Sunday 14:00–15:00 /15:00–6:00 Novice sculling on a tether / 16:00–17:30 Sculling confidence sessions
The Shed remains closed. Should you wish to use an erg, please read carefully the below for the required procedure (Thanks Beth):

Have a nice afternoon /evening.
