Hello Leander Boat Club!
The Awards are given out, the turkeys have been raffled and the docks are out of the water.
It’s winter time!!
All of LBC thanks those whose hard work made our 2011 season a successful one both on and off the water.
A HUGE thank you to the Masters men and women who took out all the broken sections and created safe docks for next spring. And to the juniors, seniors, and McMaster athletes that cleaned out the boathouse and compound to make our winter training facility.
So now winter training season is upon us — the ergs, weights, and yoga mats are ready for heavy use!! The schedule for all coached sessions for Leander and McMaster is found under the “Training Tab” above. Also under that Tab are the erg and water speed standards for the 2012 season so that you can start setting your performance goals.
General outline is as follows, but please look at the details so you are aware of what is going on in the boathouse.
