Northern Colleges and High Schools Visit for Training
Vassar and SUNY-Stoneybrook were in Columbia for spring training during the week of March 16-22. They had a great stay, and we look forward to having them back next year.
Learn-to-Row will resume shortly, as the weather warms up. The public is invited; there is no charge.
Watch this space for more details!
The Masters part of our club is made up of mostly scullers (singles and doubles rowers),
but do get in larger boats to train for regattas and winter rowing. The Dogwood Masters Regatta is coming up in Oak Ridge, TN, on Sunday, April 27. One masters single will be going, as will the club trailer, carrying boats for the youth. Let's get some masters racing in Oak Ridge!
Youth Rowing is practicing every Tuesday and Thursday at 4:45 - 6:30 and Saturdays from 8:00 - 10:00 am. We went to the Lanier Sprints Regatta on March 30 in Gainesville, GA, but it was cancelled due to high winds, cold water and low air temperatures making the rowing conditions unsafe. The crew is looking forward to a scrimmage with Augusta on the Savannah River on Saturday, April 19, and then traveling to Oak Ridge, TN, for the Dogwood Regatta on April 26.
USC is presently starting the Carolina Crew, currently doing land training and recently had an outing in the eight on the Broad River. We look forward to their rowing regularly on the river in the fall.
