Restricted Boats

Just a “Friendly Reminder”

Folks – Probably one of the hardest things I have to do as Captain is “say no”.    Especially to friends and senior rowers with whom I respect.

Having said that, I take boat damage personally, and when I give a “yes” to a restricted boat, and it comes back damaged – that is ON ME .

So, just a reminder.

Restricted boats are RESTRICTED for :

  • Racing – not general practices
  • Pre-Race Preparation

I realize we have boats out, but that doesn’t pass the mustard for taking a restricted boats (unless it is a racing lineup and during a coached practice)

Thanks for your understanding, John
