The Better-late-than-never edition of

Hello <<First Name>>,
The weekend lineup is below but first...

Allocations will be made this Saturday... 
Have you signed up to help, January 19th?

Correction: my apologies for missing off Pete H and Nick from the list of those who helped during the Big Clear-up, Sunday December 16th.

As with other equipment on the balcony, we ask all to return the newly-donated Pilates equipment (thanks Kay!) to the shelving unit and not take away.

Please donate to the Club any old towels you may have for cleaning boats - thanks.

Also, we have ourselves a new Social Secretary, with thanks to Pete H.
If you have any suggestions for 
our social calendar, please email social@weybridgerowing.org.uk

New Year... New Junior Captains

At our recent Christmas Pudding Races - well done to Prancer! - Emma Cowie (pictured, right) and Tim Johnson (left) were announced co-Captains of the Junior section; Tim will represent the boys with Emma representing the girls.
Congratulations!

ClubHub Portal:
What it is and what you can do

British Rowing, with several rowing clubs including us, developed ClubHub in response to the challenge that running a rowing club is increasingly like running a small business, especially in light of GDPR.

Core to ClubHub is an online club member management portal. Much the same as before, current club members can pay for their BR membership, but now also keep their club membership updated, including any change of address.

Members new to British Rowing and the Club, can join both at the same time and pay for their BR membership. Payments such club membership and race fees will continue to be managed separately using our current system, with a view to moving across when we are happy this works as needed.

All Members: WEY To Be Safe(r)

Given this recent report of collisions on our reach and a recently-reported 'near-miss', this is a reminder to all members that things happen faster on the water as the stream comes up and to take extra care to avoid stationary objects and approaching crews. 

Before turning to proceed in the opposite direction at any point on the reach, crews must ensure they have adequate view of the opposite direction. For example, it will be necessary when heading downstream from ‘the Cut’ to continue at least to the Cowey Sale slipway before stopping, in order to have sight of any craft proceeding upstream from Walton bridge, around by “Cumpper’s bend”. Also, particularly when coming upstream under ‘yellow board’ conditions, please take extra care to stay close to the bank on this bend as the stream can push crews out rather wide on the approach to the Cut, and downstream the same can happen through Walton bridge.

It is the responsibility of all crew members to assist the steersman in ensuring that turning is carried out in a safely and decisively. Also, you must not turn, under any circumstances, under either of the Cut bridges, and ideally, not within 100m of either bridge.
