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
