The Club has booked the Waterside Pool - end of Ryde Canoe Lake - for its bi-annual capsize drill & swim test on –
FRIDAY, 23rd MARCH with access to the Pool at at 7.30pm.
It is a safety rule that all active oarsman, oarswomen and coxswains - should have completed the capsize drill & swim test as soon as possible. Any active member who has not done this should attend this session.
You need to be at the Clubhouse for 6.45pm prompt - for a safety briefing and to help take the single scull we will use along to the Waterside Pool.
The session will include capsize drill, swim test and throw-line practise - and for coxswains life-jacket practise.
You need to do the test in rowing kit - all-in-one; T shirt & shorts etc..
The pool is indoor and heated - and there are changing rooms and showers.
If you have not completed this test - or want to do a refresher – it’s important you attend - and water activity may be restricted if you have not completed the test/drill.
Further to the last Wessex & SE Coastal meeting, we had invited British Rowing to attend the next regional meeting to present and discuss the regions participation and support of the British Offshore-Rowing Championships.
Due to the large geographical locations of all of clubs, we proposed that we would hold it as centrally as possible on a Sunday rather than the usual Tuesday night if representatives from British Rowing could attend.
I can confirm that British Rowing will be attending our next meeting with the primary purpose of outlining the plans for the Off-Shore Championships being held in Sandbanks in August.
The next meeting will be Sunday 18th March at Southsea Rowing Club and the meeting will commence at 10.30am
This is a great opportunity for all clubs within the Wessex & SE region to find out more about the Off-Shore Championships and how their clubs can take part or support and we hope that the venue and date will suit those who would usually be unable to attend a Tuesday night meeting.
To help gauge number, please could you advise by return email if you or a representative of your club will or will not be attending?
With thanks in advance,
