Racking works and helpers needed

As indicated in last months EasyOar newsletter the exciting next phase of the boathouse redevelopment is about to get underway.
The new racking for the RRC boat bay will be installed next week and to facilitate this we need to make space by de-rigging and sectioning some  of our boats and storing them safely on the trailer.
As a result a limited number of boats will be accessible in the MLC bay over the next week to allow some training sessions to occur but please co-ordinate with your coaches and the captain to organise access to equipment and be aware we may need to alter training plans to include land sessions for next week.
The boats will again be available for you to rig and set the following weekend or earlier if everything goes to plan.
We will need crews to de-rig fleet after training sessions this week and on the weekend and move onto the RRC trailer for a few days.
Pleas bring your spanners and bear with us during these brief interruptions..

Rig your boat session

We are running a ‘Rig your Boat’ session at 10am. Essential for all to attend who are rowing the RRC fleet.
Sue Chapman Popa has invested significant time as a mentor to us to ensure we have successful rows with our boats set up correctly.
This is not limited to just the span or gate heights, but also the through the work measurement (where you should adjust your feet) and oar gearing to certain boat classes.
We have a long list of Ambassadors who will lead the 10am session. Please ensure you bring your spanners.
With everyone being willing to be educated, it will become a significant opportunity for shared knowledge and learning of this essential part of our sporting equipment.
If you have questions, please direct them to your coach.
