Fall 2018


Fall is such a glorious time to row. Water is warm and generally a lot calmer than Spring. 
We get those stunning sunsets and a break from the intensity of Sprint Racing. 
Our focus is technique and swing, finding that rhythm and harmony 
that makes really great crews seem to move effortlessly. 
Practices are characterized by miles and miles of light steady state work. 

We still race, and race hard. 
Fall is characterized by Head Racing...
We prepare our athletes well for the mental challenge of racing against the clock.
Athletes have to rely on their inner resolve without the perspective 
of competition off each side, it's a fantastic life lesson! 

We kick things off with "Pre-Season" which runs August 27 -  31
This week of 2 a day training sets a great foundation for an excellent season of racing.
