    Next stop boat club presidency
    Nah, no way, it sounds like a nightmare. I have enough with being president and treasurer of two societies, being a captain just means organising outings, which I guess I can do :p:.

    I felt exactly the same this morning!
    It was really nice cycling in sunny Manchester with not a thousand layers on, for once!

    You've been naughty, you pay the price. Admittedly, it's harsh to ban everyone.

    Our college has been banned from rowing for a week because a double went out yesterday when the river was high and running really fast :facepalm:. Apparently they are going to be rowing the Atlantic though so you would think it was a good time for them to be out :p:.
    i heard about this.

    naughty HB.

    How long have you been rowing?

    Organising outings is probably the most difficult, soul destroying part of rowing if you ask me! I coach and the biggest annoyance is trying to sort out when people are available, set sessions, set crews, sort out subs if someone can't make it, rip my hair out when someone calls me saying they can't make it at the last minute, and so on!!

    ....but enjoy it :p:

    I agree! I long for the days of 'turn up and row'...

    Started in September, haha. Call me crazy, but I actually like sorting out timetables and crap like that. I'd even go as far as to say I'm pretty damn good at being organised, haha. Hopefully all the girls will be motivated enough, and I have some ways of blackmailing them anyway. We have 9 girls and our lightweight outings are at times when everyone should be available (and if you go out the night before the 5:30am outing, well fudge you).

    Weve got a bit of a funny situation with our 8's. Both have similar speed, but 1 is starting in the 20's and the other well over 200. Going to be a nightmare for the cox of the 2nd 8.

    They take around 40 novices (I think, I know they want 20 novice women), so that's 2 men and women boats and 4 subs for men and women, but regarding seniors, no idea.

    Unfortunately not the UoL team (if that's what they are referring to) are the elite rowers of all the london universities. So literally the best of kings, ucl, ucl medical school, st georges etc... I'm a novice so not quite so elite. I've also injured my hip during the last race so I'm training but out of races until the bumps. Rowing on a french river sounds like heaven though
