Hello all

I am pleased to say that last night's AGM went ahead as planned and that the new committee has been elected. I am even more pleased to annouce that I have been elected as the new Club Captain, taking over from James Howard who has done a fabulous job over the last couple of years (thank you James!). I am very much looking forward to working with you all to lead the Club through another successful and enjoyable year of mens' and womens' rowing both on and off the Cam.

We'll soon be sending round full details of the new make-up of the committee together with minutes of last night's meeting but if anyone has any queries or comments in the meantime, please let me know.

Good luck to all of you who are racing on Saturday - lets make it a great start to the winter season!

Many thanks

Sarah Coates "

 Night Rowing Policy

RowingJames writes "The Night Rowing Policy has just been updated; It is available here on the "Downloads" then "Documents" page of this website.

Please do take the time to read it and familiarise yourself with it, especially if you're new to night rowing; experienced rowers should refamiliarise themselves with it, so that in the event of an emergency, the policy is known to everyone and can be followed.

By following the policy, you're ensuring that the inherent risks of night rowing are minimised, and that in the unlikely event of an emergency, you and your crew know what to do.

Have a safe and productive winter season.

James (Water Safety officer)"

 Boston Marathon - We did it!

Rowingmeltel writes "Well we did it!

Lisa, Flick Emily and Mel courageously coxed by Emma Metcalf managed to row just over 50km in the Boston Marathon and it took us 5hrs 44 minutes. We DID end up with very sore bums and blistered hands despite efforts. Emily managed to surprise and amuse a passing mens 4 when nature called, but the madness and agonies were worth while and thanks so much to all of you who have sponsored us so far for Child Victims of Crime. So far we have raised nearly 480 excluding the additional 110 gift aid contribution. The web site for contributions will remain open for a while so if anyone of your friends/family are impressed by our efforts and would like to donate to Child Victims of Crime , don't hesitate......... http://www.justgiving.com/melanietelford1.

Many thanks too, to Andy and Elspeth for getting the boat there; to Ann for the bubbly and cheering on when we really needed it, and to Flick's ma and pa for the transport and very welcome barbecue at the end! Not sure we can say a great time was had by all but it felt like a real achievement."

 Half Hour ergo scores

RowingExcapitain writes "James Howard writes:

Hi All,

Andy N has kindly created a new forum on the club website for our 1/2 hour ergo scores. Please add your new times to this forum, John A will sporadically compile a new table with his cunning weight adjustments. Ergo related gossip banter, challenges and bets also welcome. The more we use the forums the less e-mail traffic there will be.

Ladies, I hear you are doing half hour ergos this week, do feel free to submit them for the league table (John will not publish weights for women who don't want them published - but he will need them for the time adjustment).

James "

 Site maintenance

This Web SiteIn the Gallery you should now find a 'Your Album' link (if you're logged in) where you can upload your photos. Also, new user registration has been switched back on so new users can once again use the 'create one' link in the login box. Boat booking should be working as normal. Any problems, let me know using the Feedback form as usual.

 Rowing shoes

RowingExcapitain writes "Dear all,

Rowing shoes have a strap which connects the heel of the shoe to the foot-stretcher (the platform to which the shoe is attached.)

Each heel-strap must be attached in such a way that the sole of the shoe does not rise above the horizontal. Heel-straps must not be looped through the bottom-mounting of the foot-stretcher in such a way that lifting one shoe pulls the other down.

Rowers shall not disconnect their heel-straps. This endangers other crew members, and can result in disqualification of the boat or delays boating in races.

Coxes should regularly ask the crew to check that heel-straps are correctly fitted (see coxing instructions on information page.)"
