NEWS AND UPDATES
2017 NYS Scholastic Championships at Saratoga
Long Island Scholastic Championships
Congratulations to all the athletes, coaches, parents, volunteers and spectators for making this year’s regatta a fun and successful event.
Look Ahead for Safety’s Sake
As the Spring season is underway, and our adult members who scull independently begin to get out on the bay more regularly, it’s important to review our safety guidelines. Link to master sculler and coach, Mike Wagner’s helpful discussion on Safety Tips for 2017.
Members who do not hold keys and are not yet cleared for independent sculling are encouraged to participate in open row times by buddying up with an experienced key holder member. Members who are not yet cleared for independent rowing may not host guests or take boats out on their own without an experienced member as a mentor. Additional resources include the Handbook for Members and Participants revised for 2017 and the SRA Official Safety Rules for On the Water
2017 Summer Breakfast Row Series
This year’s causal, community building series for members and guests, launched Sunday 4 June with the return of Bagels and Mimosas. The monthly themed pot luck sign up sheet gets posted near the private oar rack in the boathouse. Boating and rowing commences at 8 followed by casual breakfast from about 9:30. Friends and families are welcome to dine. July 9th and August 13th are the next opportunities to gather.
