Welcome to the Boat Club Bulletin, a new weekly email during this period of lockdown while the club remains closed.
Last week we organised a variety of different exercises, challenges and videos to allow members to still feel connected to, and activated by, the Belfast Boat Club. With lockdown to continue in its present form for at least a further three weeks, we are working on a regular online timetable of activities for everyone.
Some of the highlights from last week were the video organised by Carlos Miranda which offered messages of support from Albert Costa and Alex Corretja, two former top professional players, Stuart’s QUIZ that saw 100 people watching live while many others played along at home, and our first BIG Interview with Cian McDonnell, who is the club’s best tennis player, on the announcement of his USA tennis scholarship signing from September.
If you don't have Facebook we will be keeping members' up to date on what is happening via these weekly newsletters, however you might want to consider signing up to Facebook to get access to all of the content and classes. It's very simple to sign up - you don't need to upload any photos or personal information and you can set your account to be fully private so that nobody else can see it. If you are concerned about that the first thing you will see when you register is an option to "Take a privacy Tour" which will show you how to make your account private and unlisted.
All of these videos and lots more information are posted in our members’ Facebook group.
