Fall 2017


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, 
which our amazing body of water is especially suited. 

We still race, and race hard. 
We prepare our athletes well for the mental challenge of racing against the clock.
Athletes have to turn to themselves and tap into an 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 28 - September 1
This week of 2 a day training sets a great foundation for an excellent season of racing.
