Dear Captains and Coxes,

I hope you've all survived Lents (and BCD!) This is only again only really
of interest to those of you planning to enter WEHoRR or HORR.

As a reminder Ro Thompson has agreed to run a briefing for any interested
coxes on the 12th of March (tomorrow!) at *7:30pm in the Jock Colville Hall
in Churchill college*. 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.

Best wishes, and I'll see some of you tomorrow,
