SUNDAY

1. Rowers need to be at the Leander trailer by 7:30am for rigging. All coxswains and those rowing lightweight will weigh in right away in your racing uniform (red t-shirt, white shirt and rowing shorts). Those weighing in: Ella, Maura, Molly, Maddy D, Ethan, Owen, Liam, Alex B, Caroline, Kate M, Zaiga, Alia. Please be at the course at 7:30am to rig all our boats. Please don’t be late–the coach’s and coxie meeting is right after our weigh in. Please bring ID to weigh in.

2. Coxies and bow people for blind boats (doubles) must attend the coach’s and cox meeting at 8am. NO EXCEPTIONS.

3. I’ve attached a day sheet with all your information on it. I like to meet about an hour before race time with my crew. About 45 minutes before race time, we will do a warmup. 30 minutes to race time is generally when they call us to launch. We launch, then you row to the start.

SATURDAY

Had a bit of a surprise tossed our way for Saturday, but here’s what’s happening. Boat loading time is a bit uncertain due to the masters row. We may have to wait until as late as 10 for some of the boats, but we’re hopeful that we can de-rig most, if not all, starting at 8. So….here’s the plan.

We will meet at 6:30 at the club. (Yes…6:30!!! A HUGE sleep in!!!!!). We will come off just before 8. We will likely go out and do a whole bunch of starts and come in. Any boats we can de-rig and load, we will. My hope is that we have glass-like conditions for our row, and then at 7:59AM, the wind starts to howl bigtime! I don’t want to wait around until 10 for the masters to come off, but if we have to, we’ll figure something out. I should have a better idea this afternoon and will post to here. FYI, the masters row may be a bit of an issue next week as well. I’ll try to find out more info in the intervening days.

Sorry. This was a surprise to me, too.
