So we can plan sessions for the typically quieter holiday period, please show your availability ('Y' or 'N') for all of August. If not listed, just slot in your name towards the bottom. We may run a couple workshops - on rigging, steering, sweep-oar for all - as well as sessions for Juniors, both regular and holiday members, so if you are available to provide cover or 'sit the boat', please signup with a 'C' - thank you.

Looking back... and looking ahead to Head season

Whilst we see out the regatta season with Henley T&V and Maidenhead (anyone else making an entry?), let’s each take a moment between now and an all-squads meeting on September 1st to complete this survey - the sooner the better, really.

This survey takes a quick look back over this regatta season, as well as looking ahead to the head season. Not meant to be binding in any way, your responses will allow us to make reasonable plans for what’s needed, especially in terms of coaching and boats - indeed if you wish to reply before August 9th when the fleet sub-committee meet, please do...

Fish Pass: WSA Graham has this update following
a briefing this morning with the Mackey site

New designs are being drawn up for a supporting wall to replace the current compromised structure; this planning may take some time to complete, during which, the scaffolding and orange fence arrangement will remain in place (H&S). The new wall may involve the removal of the tree stump but will in any case extend to a point just to the right of it (as viewed from the club). As an interim measure, the void in the bank will be filled with ballast, held in place with concrete bags; they will also remove for the time being, the arrangement currently creating the channel diversion. This work will obviously necessitate the temporary return of the work barge and crane.

Longer term, there is now a question mark over whether or not the fish pass will actually be constructed as originally intended. It is possible that a similar migratory facility could be achieved, simply by creating a concrete slope immediately below the mini weir. Whatever decision is reached, the bank will be re-established, most probably with blocks of caged rocks. During this period of work, the Safety fence will need to be moved back to a line running immediately next to the concrete ridge adjacent to the  path outside the ladies changing room. This will unfortunately deny us, for the duration, access to the strip of artificial grass next to the racking.

Beyond the bank stabilising  work, it is uncertain whether any or all of the activities connected with the fish pass will now take place this year. The project is now at least 3 months behind schedule, raising the risk of the significantly increased water levels due later in the autumn, impeding construction.

As I’ve said before, don’t shoot the messenger. Remember, we’re all paying for this...
