Well, this should have been the last week of hard training before the FISA Masters World Championships in Sarasota.
Hurricane Florence had other plans (always those Italians …).
Tuesday night practice was spent fetching the trailer of UNC Men’s rowing team in Chapel Hill. Their Coach Micah Boyd generously offered us their trailer (ours still stolen - transporting hay and straw on some farm in Lee County) to bring our boats, oars and material to safety.
Wednesday morning: Last training. Brutal 5 times 500 meters all out.
Wednesday night: Conditions would have been perfect for practice. However, we had to load all our club’s belongings on the UNC trailer.
Half of our our members came to help.
A big Thank you very much! to John of Crosswinds Boating Center as well as Steve and Brandon of Apex Boatworks for your help and support. It is good to have a great landlord and generous neighbors.
Friday: weights in the morning, erg in the evening
Saturday: Erg - stay tuned for instructions from Richard M.
Sunday: Erg in the morning - potentially move trailer in the afternoon
Monday: first day of a week full of erging
September 23rd: Asheville Rowing Club comes to pick up our boats for Sarasota. Thank you very much!
Thursday September 27th: First 3 races in Sarasota at the FISA World Master Championships
