Dear college coxes and captains,

A reminder of this talk *tomorrow evening at 7:30pm* on racing and
marshalling on the Tideway. I very strongly recommend it to anyone entering
WEHoRR/ManHORR this year, or who's interested in entering any of the
Tideway Heads next year.

The meeting will be online, link below.

Best wishes,
