HAZARD area of the week: we've had recent incidents of FSC crews crossing the river in front of the club into the path of oncoming boats. Whether crossing to land or to boat, on ebb tide or flood, you must keep a good lookout BEFORE crossing and WHILE crossing and STOP if necessary. You do NOT have right of way when crossing the fairway. Stay safe people.

Rowing commitee (club captains, squad captains, sculling co-odinator and safety advisers): meet this Saturday. Please let your squad captain know if you want anything raising with regards to the water-side of the club.

Management committee observing: all members are very welcome to sit-in on a committee meeting to find out how your committee runs the good ship FSC (subject to no sensitive items being discussed). If you'd like to do that please let me know. The latest committee meeting minutes are on the board outside the clubroom.

Extreme tides next week 27 - 30 October: if at all possible, avoid going out +/- 1 hour around low tide due to risk of grounding, and ensure tide boards closed properly. If Surrey arch of Kew Road bridge is dry you must not go through the centre arch without a spotter who can see round the bend for you.
