Spring Experienced Masters Crew Meeting

Ethan Curren met with the assembled group of experienced masters rowers on April 13th to discuss what they want to work at and try to accomplish this year in rowing at GWC.

For the  six-week spring session (April 19th through May 26th), it was decided that Tuesdays will primarily focus on sculling and Thursdays will be oriented toward sweep practices.

The group also decided that GWC will have rowers compete at five regattas this spring and summer: Pittsford Regatta (May 28th), Bernacki (June 18th), Row Ontario on (July 23-24), Canadian Master’s Nationals (July 31st), US Master’s Nationals Championships (August 18-21).

There was some discussion about new uniforms for this season.

Warning! Rowing is a highly addictive, full body exercise!
