Goodbye Charlie Brown

Got up early today and headed over to the boathouse on a wet and chilly Saturday to help a couple of Lakeside School coaches load the Charlie S. Brown on their trailer. The oldest eight in our fleet, the Charlie S. Brown served Lewis & Clark crew well over the years. Like the regatta, the boat was named in memorial of a longtime Lewis & Clark coach. Originally one of the primary racing boats, the hull has moved through the squad to the JV’s, novice, and finally to the beginning rowing course.

And today the Charlie S. Brown finished up her career at Lewis & Clark. Not for long, though– by common consensus, the new four will take up the name Charlie Brown this spring.
