We’re back into the swing of the season at Vesta and there’s lots going on. Make sure to add these dates to your diary so you don’t miss out!
Big Breakfast – After training on Saturday 3rd October. Come upstairs to the bar for an epic fry up. All the profits go to paying for your weekend tea and toast, so even if you can’t stay for it, a contribution would be gratefully received. Alex is cooking, so you know it will be good.
Whole Club Pub Crawl –After training, the tradition is to get the train down to Mortlake and do a ‘reconnaissance mission’ to check out the Head course. Naturally we’ll walk back via each pub along the river. Plus it’s a chance to cheer on those crews racing in the Pairs Head that afternoon. Meet at the Vesta Bar.
Water Safety briefing – After training, around 12h30. If you haven’t yet been to a safety briefing this season then this one is a must. The rules along the river are constantly changing, so even if you are a senior rower and you have heard these briefings in previous years, you still need to attend. If you are signed off on the steers list, you also must attend. (Without trying to be too heavy-handed, you will be removed from the steers list if you do not attend). All coaches must also attend a briefing, and there will be a session just for coaches at the rowing committee meeting on 3 October.
