Train Smarter, Row Faster

For all those registered for this BR Masters Committee workshop, you should now have your support manual from Jeff. If not, let me know. Otherwise, see you... 
Monday 18 December - Weybridge Rowing Club - 7pm for 7.30pm
There is a long-standing tradition at Weybridge for enjoying a (fairly short) Christmas morning row followed by rum punch, with the rum kindly donated by former Weybridge member Michael Swain, who now lives in Bermuda. Beware, it isn’t like any rum you may have drunk before!

The outing is a combined Weybridge/Weyfarers row in whatever boats people feel like using – last year we had an octuple and a couple of touring quads.

Meet at the Club for 10am
Christmassy fun rows are here at last!

Our Club President, Caroline Turnbull is organising a Capsize & Recovery Drill on 
Sunday 14th January at Cranmore School, West Horsley, starting at 2 p.m.
If you haven’t done capsized before, it’s a very useful exercise even if you think you won’t ever want to go out in a single scull. (The capsize drill is also a requirement for your Certificate of Watermanship). It’s actually a fun thing to do, and takes place in a nice, warm pool.

We will also check your swimming ability – you need to be able to swim 4 lengths of the pool in light clothing, e.g. leggings/shorts and a T-shirt. You don’t have to do it quickly, but we need to know that you can survive if you fall in!

Finally, we will teach you to throw a throw-line so you can rescue someone in the river.

We can accommodate just 20 people per session and with it being open to Weyfarers and Weybridge members, you will need to be quick to
