New 9/7 deadline for Head of the Lake signup

The signup for the Head of the Lake regatta in Seattle (November 5) has been moved up to midnight on September 7th.  That’s this Thursday.  This regatta sells out fast, so coaches need to be ready to make entries soon.   Head of the Lake does not accept entries from rowers with less than a years’ experience.

We hope that the smoke situation improves soon.  Coaches and captains are communicating with their teams if practices are cancelled.


Member Update–Events, Schedules (and Parking. . . )

Hello Members:

For those impacted by the academic calendar, good luck this week and next!   Several announcements follow below:

Labor Day Weekend–regular schedule, EXCEPT, Monday’s row is a 7am Open Row, for all members.

Fall Work Party, September 9, 9:30am-noon.  Meet at boathouse for work there, and on boats in the temporary location.

Race Around Ross Island and Class Grad Brunch.  October 7, 7am at Boathouse.  ALL class graduates from 2017 are welcome.  No sign up necessary.  We will row an informal race around Ross Island, with estimated times announced and enthusiastic cheers for everyone.  Plus a potluck brunch after the “racing”

Fall Race signups now open.  The Head of the Dog deadline is Aug 28!!

PARKING at temporary location–it seems that some members are parking in bike lanes or in the private parking spots of local businesses.   Note that there are only 6 legal spots right in front of the fence–other legal street parking is at least a block or two away.   We don’t want to be bad neighbors to the businesses–nor to we want to you to get towed!!

LTR Cox needed tomorrow… and beyond!

**Corrected Link Below:**

We are in need of someone to cox Learn to Row tomorrow morning. Sign up here:


If you can’t help out tomorrow, we still have a handful of open spots in the above class and for two of our other classes:

Thank you, and Happy Apocaclipse!

Dock Move – Wednesday Edition

Hi everyone,
Thank you to those of you who came this morning to Moving Day! Your hard work is so, so appreciated.
Our dock has officially been removed and the contractors are well on their way to putting it in at the new site. The gangway is installed, and the anchors are going into the water as we speak. It looks as if the dock will very likely be done Thursday during the day.
Tomorrow (Thursday): 

No row tomorrow. Rigging party at  5:30am — report directly to the new site!

Please wear close-toed shoes, and bring your headlamps and flashlights! It will be dark until about 6:15.

Friday practice is very likely to be on the water.  Friday rowers should plan to show up at 5am at the boathouse as usual, where coaches will make lineups. Then, coaches will drive launches from the fire dock to our new dock, while rowers jog/bike/carpool to the new site and get hands on.
