Masters LTR flipped Osprey. 3 new rowers, 1 experienced bow, 1 experienced coxswain. Had 1 coaching launch with them with 1 new coach (Roger), and 2 volunteers (Barb M. and Diane N.). The boat was only rowing by pairs at arms & body. The rowers in the boat were moving the boat faster than expected. Someone caught a crab and the boat flipped quickly. Charlie struggled to get his feet out at first, but was able to get them out without assistance. After all the athletes were holding onto the boat and safe, but still in the water, Coach Madison arrived to assist. No injuries. All athletes were able to get back into the boat with guidance.

The two doubles were approaching each other, and they collided. The Tenacity was a bit farther away from the west shore as it should have been for this traffic pattern. I did not see this incident, but I did hear it. I went over to the boy's boat first since they were closer to me, to see if they were ok or not. Both boys said they were injured. Corwin said his oar hit him the head and Ben said the Tenacity bow rigger hit him on his left arm. Ben said his arm hurt so I had him get in my launch and I gave him an ice pack. Jet was riding with me in the launch, so I had him take Bens's seat in the boat. to help Corwin row back. I then went to see how the girls were. They said they were not injured, so they rowed back to the dock. FYI. Prior to this incident I had to warned both boats to watch where they are going. Both boats came close to other passing boats earlier in this same practice. I think it is about 60/40 fault. All boats are responsible to watch where they are going. Boat Damage: Tenacity. The boat as a bent back stay on the port side of the bow rigger. Skadoosh. The boat has a damage Splash Guard.

Multiple incidents of unsafe practices by Masters Members upon returning to dock/BH. In Friends a member stepping out of boat bf command was given, taking dockside oars out before everyone has removed waterside oars, talking while carrying the boat, have the boat having boat to shoulder before command had been given to show heads and go down to shoulders. While moving boat to rack have the members were down to waist without instruction to do so. each item was addressed by myself and Julie Mc Cusker. People are NOT following protocol to safely move boats. Observed a double being moved into BH with the same issues, no one in that boat had taken responsibility to call commands and so one was at waist another at shoulders, they did not know how to slant the boat to avoid riggers on the boat above and a 3rd person “trying to help” was in the way and making things worse. There is an accident waiting to happen here.

Mindy Weschler appears to have experienced a TIA while stretching after today's morning lift session. I was in the bathroom, came out and sat at my desk to receive a call from Patty Gleason alerting me to the situation. Mindy was already in Karen Soleau's car by the time I went out to check on her, they explained what had happened and that she was going to the Cleveland Clinic.

During a Junior LTR Camp, a camper was rowing normally when the foot stretcher popped out of the boat. We were unable to reconnect the foot stretcher tube ends onto the foot stretcher while on the water. We were able to take the rower out of the boat and replace her with an experienced varsity rower to row the boat back to the dock. No pieces are missing. Possible solution - glue the ends into the tube. 2nd report on shell - there are two small holes in the hull of the boat that are causing the boat to take on water. After 2 practices on the water in a row, the boat needed to be drained quite a bit.

During Tuesday Masters Performance practice, a single red/blue/red oar was found in the mangroves near the dock. It was unclear at the time how long it had been there. At the end of morning practices on Tuesday, it was discovered that the oars' partner was missing. The mangroves surrounding the dock area were inspected, and no oar was found. On Wednesday morning, the missing oar appeared in the boatyard. We suspect that someone found the oar in the water, and kindly tossed it into our yard. There was no damage to the oars.

A storm with high winds came in right after the 6-8pm Master's LTR. The 2 launches were on the dock with the plugs out. The wind blew the launches off of the docks. Launch 6 was blown between the dock and the shore. It was pulled out of the muck on Friday morning, drained, and cleaned. It did not have any issues running. Julio's launch was blown to the east boat ramp. Julio was able to tie the launch to the ramp over night, but the plug was out. The next morning, there was roughly 6in of water and sediment in the stern of the boat, soaking the battery box. The launch ran fine for the practice, but the battery appeared dead when we tried to raise the motor at the end of the practice. Both launches should be in the yard, and both were cleaned out.

One of the upstairs barbells is noticeably bent. Some heavy deadlifting was performed yesterday evening and I suspect that's when the bar became bent. No injuries were sustained nor was the equipment misused. The bar might have been slowly bending through regular use, but it is now significantly bent.

I was bow in VVV heading north on west side of the channel. We were almost last to launch, so passing returning traffic heading south was expected. We passed two singles (port to port) about 3k into our row. The singles had good distance from the shore and from us, and we were well out of the channel, so I felt we were all in our proper lanes. More returning skulls heading south were expected so I continued to look often. Somehow I did not see George in the founder with pontoons. I don’t think he saw me either because there was no warning or yell before impact. We collided port side and the boats came to a stop.. First made sure we were all OK, then checked boats for damage and separated. Our port side oars hitting each other’s boats and equipment is what stopped us. I was worried my port oar hit George in his back, but he said it didn’t. We were able to continue with our session and I gave both boats and George a closer look during boat wash. I couldn’t find any significant damage. There are probably new scratches on both boats. I noticed founder’s bow ball is loose, but there’s already a screw holding it on. George and I talked and agreed we need to look more often, but as the more experienced rower, I should have seen him first. I now realize although I am more comfortable looking over my left shoulder, it makes more sense to look over my right if I’m expecting traffic from the other direction and we want to pass port to port. If I had looked over my right, this probably would’ve been avoided. I understand how close this was to head on collision without warning, and can imagine how bad that could be. I’ve always thought of myself as very safety oriented and well aware of my surroundings so this really surprised me. I’m proud of the progress I’ve made with this sport since starting a year ago, but I may have gotten over confident and almost paid dearly. I’m very grateful for this lesson and I’ll be looking over left AND right shoulders from now on!

In preparing Cerulean for rowing, it was noticed that a few wing nuts were missing from the foot stretchers. This was resolved but after launch I noticed that the boat was quite difficult to steer. In the harbor I found that the boat was skewing to port and mostly unresponsive to the steering mechanism. My toe couldn't go all the way to the left and also I noticed a kink in the steering cable which seemed to be keeping the cable from sliding all the way to the right. At about 1000 meters out, we realized that the end of the steering cable was trapped under the rigging. We eventually turned around and returned to the dock without incident by rowing mostly on port and occasionally checking on starboard. After the boat was back in the boathouse, Julio fixed the trapped steering cable and also tightened the cable so it moved more freely to both sides.

The Terry Ryan has a two-inch-ish scratch on the bottom, closer to the bow. I'm pretty sure we scraped the boat against the rigging of the boat above as we removed the TR from the rack in preparation for rowing.

I went upstairs into the boathouse and about 22 students were working out/ goofing off upstairs with no supervision.Shotsi happened to walk upstairs and witnessed the same behavior. At one point Shotsi told a group of them to knock off their behavior when she witnessed them misusing equipment. Mack eventually came upstairs. Mack told me he was supposed to be the one providing supervision but was pulled aside to speak with a rower (Salma). While that is good I think it left several kids unsupervised for an extended period of time.

In front of Gifford Cut, closer to the boathouse. Toffey was rowing back towards the boathouse and Cerulean was rowing out. Both boats did not see the other, and while they attempting to avoid the collision, they hit on starboard sides. Bow seats oar from the 8+, in an attempt to duck out of the way, hit Mason in the back of the head. I took Mason out of the boat and he rode in the launch back to the dock. He said he was shaking and his head hurt, but after asking concussion like symptoms, he had no headache, blurriness/dizziness, or nausea. To my knowledge, there were no damages to the boats.
