Dear Captains and Coxes,

Congratulations on surviving a cold, wet and at times quite blustery Lents.

This is just a reminder that there is a briefing *tomorrow* for any
interested coxes on marshalling and racing on Tideway. I'd very very
strongly recommend this to any cox planning to race WEHoRR or ManHORR this
year. The briefing starts at 7:30pm tomorrow (3rd March), in the Cripps
Court Auditorium of Magdalene college. *NB* This isn't within the main
college site, but just round the corner on Chesterton Road and can be found
on this map:  https://map.cam.ac.uk/?inst=magd&loc=2#52.212261,0.116740,17
- I'd be grateful if you could pass on this reminder to any interested
coxes who may not be subscribed to the CUCBC cox mailing list.

Best wishes,
