[CUCBC Captains] Coxing on the Tideway (WEHoRR & ManHORR)

Dear Captains and Coxes,

This is only really of interest to those of you planning to enter WEHoRR or

Ro Thompson has agreed to run a briefing for any interested coxes on the
12th of March (the Tuesday after bumps) at 7pm. Racing on the Tideway is
not like the Cam - the stream makes positioning of your shell much more
important when racing, and marshalling is considerably more complex (though
no less chaotic...) I can thoroughly recommend this talk to anyone, whether
they've raced on the Tideway before or not.

Ro has been coxing for 15 years, including three years training on the
Tideway with Vesta Rowing Club based in Putney. She has four Tideway
pennants, three from WeHORR and one from HORR. Whilst as Vesta she coxed
the top womens crew to 3rd and 4th place in WeHORR and raced twice in the
elite womens 8s event at Henley Royal Regatta. So she is very well placed
to offer guidance on handling racing on the Thames.

A venue will be confirmed closer to the time, but I wanted to get this into
the diray before the madness that is next week descends upon us all.

Best wishes for the last few days of training, and for racing next week,
