Competent Cox Coaching on Barton Broad

Barton competent cox 16 Nov 2013

Mike Gilbert coached two very successful competent cox sessions on Barton Broad with an Evian bottle serving as man overboard……….(sadly Alan was not available!). However, fortunately  for the Broads Authority our coxes were highly skilled at retrieval. He  will come back to do another course in the early spring to prepare us for the racing season.

 

Meanwhile, back at the workshop, Barrie making great progress slightly hampered by slow drying epoxy……..

Thanks to Barrie, Ian and all our helpers, the build is going really well – we are six weeks ahead of where we were with last years build!

Remember to sign up for building sessions on the calendar.

The AGM is on Thursday 12th December 2013 – come and put your point of view and enjoy an evening of “rowing chat”.
