Daffodil Cup

Wet. Very, very wet. The rain didn’t let up all day, but the good news is that the wind forecast (20+) proved entirely inaccurate, with good flat water for racing all day long.

I’m going to keep this short and will post a longer recap on Monday as I’m wiped. Overall good impressions; both varsity 8’s in 5th, both varsity 4’s in 4th. The Women’s 8 was slowed by some “oar-to-oar engagement” with a rival crew off the start and lost the lead pack. I don’t know if we would have been on terms in the race, but we’re looking forward to giving it a go next week. Our Varsity men’s 4 looked really nice and was pretty close on the crews in front; only a quick beep of the horn out of 3rd and not that far off 2nd as well.

First sprint races today for a few of our novices, and major props to our coxsawins today who did multiple races in those prior mentioned wet conditions; good teamwork and support all around. Looking forward to a couple days rest and we’re back at it Monday afternoon in preparation for the NCRC Invitational next weekend.
