Leichhardt Rowing Club

This Week @ LRC – 9 February 2018

Juniors Group

You will see them around the shed more and more! We have a strong new group of young people who have picked up the sport and are going 100mph!
Thanks to Geoff, Lauren, Alex and Eric to get this program going. We need to support them with coaching so if anyone is interested, please talk to the Captain or Geoff.

Boat bookings

Remember to do these on Thursdays. After that, bookings are not taken or guaranteed!
Also the 10 minutes rule applies: if you have booked a boat, but you have not claimed it within 10 minutes of booking time, someone can take it. Please do ask around before taking a booked boat anyway, just as a courtesy, to make sure whoever has booked the boat is really not there.

Damage reports

The Iron Cove was used, damaged and not reported. Please report all boat damage to Bob or Matt so it can be addressed.

Private Boat Servicing

Isaac and Michael are offering services to all private boats in the shed. This includes a thorough cleaning of all parts, as well as setting up of the boat for the appropriate size, strengths and specific needs of the rower. This entails the measuring and correcting of gate heights, pitch, span and angles. This can often be 3-5 hours of work, depending on the condition of the boat.

Both Isaac and Michael have significant experience in detailed boat maintenance, doing this kind of work in a number of school and club programs for multiple seasons, as well maintenance of some of our club’s best cared for boats. A full service is offered for a single for $150, negotiable for bigger boats, contact either Isaac or Michael at the shed or online.

Regatta entries

We are (still) having issues with the @lrc.com.au email addresses so send your entries directly to christine.seeliger@cantab.net or annacico@gmail.com or place in the shared spreadsheet.
