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.

Program Updates

Hello Members:

We are making some small adjustments to our coached rowing schedule to better serve more members.

L3 Sculling

L3 Sculling on Fridays has been suspended for now.  This is in large part due to low attendance and the WF  women’s sweep schedule.  We may add it back later this spring.   L3 sculling continues on Tuesdays with Leslie.

We are adding L3 scull coaching to Monday mornings–so L4 and L3’s will be together with two coaches. The boathouse is empty of sweep rowers on Mondays–so more room for the scullers.

Weekend Open Rows

While open rows have traditionally been sweep on Saturday and sculling on Sunday, this year we are trying to broaden opportunities on both days.  On Saturdays there will be a coach designated as the sculling contact.  Just ask when you get to the boathouse.   And the same for sweep on Sundays.   Both days are busy, and by designating one coach as the “go-to” person, it should help.

Evening Open Rows

Later this month we are going to try some evening open rows.  Originally scheduled for Thursdays, these rows are going to be on Mondays starting April 17.  5:30pm.  You can sweep or scull.  Depending on numbers, you may be able to work in small boats.
