Let’s make a real push to be off the docks by 5:45 at the latest on Thursday morning! Supposed to be chilly, so wear lots of layers!
The four stroke engine (the one on the trolley near the stairs inside the compound), is good to go. Make sure it is supplied with straight gas only.
Matt & Fiora, DON’T FORGET THE SAFETY MEETING AT THE CLUB ON THURSDAY AT 6!
Our novices are getting exponentially better each practice, so keep up the good work. We will be trying to wean them off having experienced rowers in their boats very soon, so expect to start seeing combinations that might be racing combinations, very soon! We’re still confined to fours, quads and eights due to cold water rules.
One other note: Our final Fortino’s fundraiser is coming up a week from Saturday (the Saturday of Easter weekend). I will be putting out the first version of a schedule tomorrow or Friday. If you can do a double shift, please let me know. I may not have to put you in there, but it’s good to have your name available if I need you. Those who missed the first one will be scheduled first for this one.
Some have asked about the Wolter 4x. We’ll be putting that on the water at some point, but we’re holding it back for another week or so to keep it safe in the midst of all the potential hazards that can happen out there in the first week of rowing!
