We will row at 7am, then immediately following, load the trailer. Novices will be grouped with a lead senior. Listen to them and follow them. If a step is missed, it can be very costly and dangerous. Some examples?
–being careless and not bungeeing the seats can result in a seat flying out of the boat on the trailer at 100km/hr, banging off the boats below, and flying into a car’s windshield;
–not tying a boat down tight can result in a boat flying off the trailer on the highway;
–not loading oars means there are no oars to row the boat at the regatta;
–not tightening nuts and bolts tightly means they fly off the trailer and we have nothing to secure our riggers in Buffalo;
–not loading stretchers means we have nothing to place our boats on in Buffalo.
ALL of the above have happened many times before. Don’t let it happen to us.
