The Vikings look on towards the start of a promising Fall season. With three full 8s of returning and experienced rowers, the Men’s crew has been pulling their way towards readiness for the American Lake Fall Classic on October 12th. Finalization of the Head of the Charles 4+ has allowed for more intense focus and competition between the V4+, JV4+ and the 2V8 and 3V8 during practice this week as the team looks to put meters under the boats to get into racing form.
The novice squad is now at a steady ~30 rowers who have shown that they have the mental constitution and physical ability to take on the rigors of the sport. This Saturday will mark the first full on-the-water practice for most, a capstone to a week of technique work and increasingly difficult dry land workouts.
