Saturday Racing Info – Men, Women’s 4x & Singles

Leave a comment

Hey Athletes,

Some info for tonight & Saturday:

1) Single Rowers – please be ready to assist in the loading of your singles this afternoon at 4pm (at LBC), if this was requested by either me and/or Eben. Eben & Anise will be taking Jocelyn & Luke’s singles at 4:30pm. I will be taking Hudson’s single at 4pm.

2) Weigh Ins (Jocelyn & Hudson) – please be ready to weigh-in with unisuit & student card by 7am. If you prefer to weigh-in at 6:30am, let me know & I can bring you early.

3) Rigging – Please begin rigging the singles, Ad Astra (4x), Fazari (4+), and Jackson Stocks (2x) immediately upon arrival (each crew takes care of their own boat). The Justice is first being used by St. Mary’s as a double, so please do NOT rig the Justice.

4) Mud & Rain Warning – The ground at Welland is currently swamped, which means that everything will be muddy. Please bring appropriate footwear. A tent for shelter is also recommended, in order to stay warm. These can be pitched off to the side of the trailer, around the outskirts of the trailer grounds.

5) Saturday PM Practice – I am requesting that the following crew boats practice Saturday evening when the course is open post-racing (i.e.: at 5:30/6pm): Sr. Men’s 72kg 4+ (Kiri, JJ, Hudson, Philippe, Lucas), Sr. Women’s 2x (Haley, Breanne). Singles racing on Sunday are welcome to join (Jocelyn, Luke, Madison). Mike’s crews are also welcome. The Sr. Men’s 4x will not be practicing on Saturday PM; instead, they can practice on Sunday AM between 5:30-6:30am, if desired.

General Notes: Saturday should be calm water. Athletes that aren’t racing on Saturday are still advised to join in order to support the crews by cheering at the finish line (near the parents’ tent), or by assisting at the trailer & with hot-seating. For those racing, see the posts below for your race times (here: https://westdalerowing.wordpress.com/2014/05/15/rigging-info-race-times-weigh-ins-arrivals/). Give yourself about 75min to drive there (min. 60min).

See you all in the morning (remember to bring lots of food!),
Alessandra 🙂
