23rd Nov '01Men's 2k ergo challengeby jwe
In the new vein of challenges resulting in prizes, I am offering a bottle of wine to the man whose 2k on Tuesday shows greatest improvement on the start of term (in watts). The current leader is Dan Walker, who in the 4 weeks of the last training cycle improved by 20.8 watts, followed closely by Dan Jane with 19 watts. (2 replies...)
28th Nov '01BPBC crews for Fridayby mcp
Ok, with BPBC (First and Third old boys) crews for Friday shaping up (see latest post from the buffers), it's time to get going on your guesstimate for the relative times of BPBC and FaT!
With plenty of May colours on board you think BPBC should go pretty swiftly, but to what extent will three weeks of rowing as crews benefit First and Third?
If you've no idea just have a guess anyway and maybe win a bottle of wine out of it for Saturday night...
22nd Nov '01Clare Novice Regattaby mcp
The Clare Novice Regatta runs from today through to Saturday. It is great fun to row in and good to watch too - get down there and support our crews!
Here are the times of our races. "Marshalling" times are at Chesterton - these races could be expected to run perhaps 15 mins after this time.

25th Oct '01Autumn Head restoredby jwe
After giving out to everyone that the Autumn Head would be cancelled yesterday, the news went out this morning that the event would still be run.
24th Oct '01Conditions Updateby jwe
Autumn Head organisers Rob Roy have said that the racing will be cancelled; it also appears that the Cam Conservancy are not optimistic for the flood watch to come off before Sunday.
22nd Oct '01Tideway Training Campby mcp
Two men's IVs and one women's have spent the weekend training on the tideway in London. Previous captain's Matt Arnold ('98) and James Leake ('95) coached, making use of a Thames Rowing Club launch and video camera. And the club's new IV made its maiden voyage - surviving despite being steered by me, thankfully ;-)
The two days have been peculiarly devoid of major disaster - the worst it got was JPD's car filling with a couple of inches of water as the river side road flooded at the top of the tide on Saturday.

30th Sep '01Steering Committee meetsby jwe
The committee met to discuss how to improve the performance of the top end of the Club's men's squad. Adrian Cassidy, chief coach of CULRC, and Peter Brandt, President of the Club, provided very useful input and guidance, which have led to a set of key changes to the structure of the men's squads, the teaching of novices, and the coaching infrastructure for men's rowing. Further details will be distributed at Committee and Men's meetings in the next couple of days.
