Cox Clinic April 30, Regionals Sign up

Two important items for everyone

  1. Cox clinic tomorrow, Sunday, 8am.   This clinic is designed for rowers who end up coxing (all of us!), and for those who want to gain confidence in the cox seat.  As part of the clinic, we will take turns practicing dock landings.    Duration of the clinic depends on the number of participants–but plan on a couple of hours.  Check in with coaches Ralf and Kass when you get to the boathouse.  FREE.
  2. Regionals regatta sign up.  June 23-25.  This is our largest regatta of the year.  It’s local, on Vancouver lake.   USRowing Championship membership is required ($65–just get it before race day).  The entry fees for the regatta itself are also steeper than other races–just FYI.  Our goal is to get every member 2-3 events.  Dual members 4 events.   This might change, as the schedule and format of the regatta have not been published–there may be an increase to the prior year 4 event limit.   Sign up DEADLINE is May 6.  So you’ve got just one week to sign up.  Use our Regatta sign up page.

Weekend Update

Busy times as racing season is here.

Dexter Boat Loading, Friday morning at 5:15am.  All racers.

Pay Dexter race fees, please, at this link

Open Row Saturday will happen as scheduled, at 7am.  No Sunday coached row this weekend.

•We have a new Open Row, Monday evenings at 5:30pm  Kass is coaching!  Sweep or scull, depending on your preference and how many we have.

Coachless Rowing–with the river above 50 degrees, rowing without a launch is allowed, during daylight hours only.   Sweep boats need an experienced member (2+ years rower/cox).  Scullers must have passed the L3 2x/4x captains test or the L4 1x captains test.  At this point, 1x scullers still need to row with a buddy.  That rule will be lifted once the river gets closer to 60 degrees.

Cox Clinic–For rowers who want hands on experience in docking an 8+ and learning the nuances of steering and safety.  Sunday April 30.  8am.  We will take turns practicing landings and steering on the river.  FREE.
