Dear all,

Thank you for your patience, I hope your LENT BUMPS campaigns went well? We have been very busy since i last emailed you all. We raced Oxford Brookes in a Fixture and beat them convincingly. Last weekend the Blue boat raced Molesey and won by 20 seconds and Blondie raced Thames Rowing Club’s 1st 8 with 2 pieces. It was tough conditions with both boats taking on water. However, we had a win in the first piece and they won the second. Some great racing experience for the Blondie Boat.

So the first event we want to talk about is BUCS:
Here is a link for you to express your interest. Below are some dates for your diaries. Any issues please let me know.

You do not have to be doing BUCS or HWR to come to these, they are in addition to those opportunities.

Events and Training
The goal is to put together an 8+ and a 4+ for the novice category (The goal will be for the 4+ to come out of the 8+).
I would also like to race an intermediate 4+ for those who are no longer Novices.
Training for BUCS will begin with an ergo on the 7th of April at 5pm in Goldie Boat House.
We will do another ergo on the 8th at the same time and location
From this we will put a group together to row on the 12th. This will be an early morning session. (any issues let me know). We shall organise training times to best suit the group but i would expect on previous years this will be morning sessions (train departs Cambridge at 5:55 and we return on the 8:26 so you can make your 9am classes. I will inform you closer to the time how this works with trains, re-embursement for train tickets etc.

Dev Squad - BUCS - Ergo Session
Scheduled: 7 Apr 2016, 17:00 to 18:30
Location: Goldie Boat House

We will enter the Academic 4+ event. Training will begin the week after BUCS with a couple of ergs to see who is interested - 4th May in Goldie at 5pm. We will also hold a planning meeting to organise sessions from availability.

Dev Squad - HWR Campaign Begins - Ergo Session
Scheduled: 4 May 2016, 17:00 to 18:30
Location: Goldie Boat House

Development Squad Camp
This will be a smaller group than in previous years (approximately 16 athletes and 3 coxes) and will start on the 21st June through till the 14th July. A new element this year will be a sculling focus in the last week which will be based in Cambridge. This camp exposes you to the trialling process, the technical focusses we pursue, some of our workouts, some racing and importantly gives you an opportunity to evaluate if it is going to work with your academic commitments.

More information on HWR and the DS Camp after easter.

Look forward to hearing from you and any questions please drop me a message.
