Congratulations to the medal winners in the 2014/15 Norwich Masters’ Winter Sculling Ladder. A presentation and reminiscence were held at the Crown Point on conclusion of this winter’s competition, the winners being :
Best newcomer: Claire Bingham (Yare Boat Club)
Women’s winner: Sarah Lister (Norwich RC)
Men’s winner and The Nick Cooper Trophy winner: Lawrence Taylor (Broadland BC)
This year, 30 Master single scullers competed in at least one leg of The Ladder. To quote Anthony Meynell of Yare BC, “it kept me training hard throughout the winter”.
Next winter’s Ladder will have legs extending into March, and a medal for the oldest sculler to compete in every leg. If you’re a master, can single to Paddy’s Pump and back, and can be tempted to enter local heads, you simply must enter The Ladder. Times are adjusted for Masters’ age (and gender), so neither age nor gender is an excuse!
THE TREE FELLING PLANNED FOR TOMORROW IS POSTPONED
Due to the high winds it is not considered safe to fell the tree this weekend.
THIS WILL NOW TAKE PLACE NEXT WEEK ON
Saturday 17th January (please arrive by 8.45 a.m. latest).
Bring wellies and gloves please, a hand log saw would also be useful if you have one.
Refreshments will be provided.
Following Paddy’s Run on Sunday, the updated Masters Sculling Ladder is at this link to Google Drive.
(Corrections have been made to the Masters F/G times in the Yare Cup, which affect a few standings.)
You can download a copy of the details here.
It is winter, don’t forget to bring some spare warm clothes to the club when you row.
You don’t have to fall in to get wet:-
it can rain/hail/snow
you can be swamped by a cruiser
you can sit behind someone splashy.
If you bring spare clothes you won’t have to travel home wet and cold
and don’t forget the thermal blankets in the hatches.
There is a kettle at the back of the boathouse and the water dispenser supplies hot water.
There is coffee near the kettle.
