WEATHER will be HOT!!! To avoid heat injuries, see below:
~All Athletes should have a white hat, sunscreen, water bottle, light colored clothing.
~Apply sunscreen multiple times
~Drink ½ a water bottle (8-12oz at least) before launching
~Every athlete takes a full bottle in the boat
~Wear a white hat with a few ice cubes under it to stave off the heat
~No extra activities (play, walks, etc),
~Should be sitting in shade when not racing or rigging, if no option for A/C exists.
~STAY OUT OF THE SUN it can increase the effect of the heat by 15 degrees!

**We have scratched several (mostly mid-day events) to limit exposure to the heat/sun, secured 2pm checkouts in several rooms to have a place to go between races and be cool.
Dehydration effects are cumulative from day to day so make sure they are hydrated especially Thursday and Friday. Coaches will decide for each crew if practicing Friday is beneficial or not once at the course (mother nature is really the boss).

Questions please contact Coach Mike or Coach Sean.
