Captains Corner - January 2013

With less than six weeks to go until we’re on the water, excitement is building at winter training. Everyone has gotten back into the swing of things after a very nice winter break. The team is gaining speed as seen with the various PR’s last Monday (6ks for the men, 2ks for the women). The effort we put in now will clearly show at regattas in the spring. There is still quite a bit of time left to get even faster!
Many rowers are signed up for the Mid-Atlantic Erg Sprints on February 2nd and will earn points for our school. If you have not registered yet, there is still time.  Everyone is encouraged to participate.  We’re looking forward to doing well!
A large amount of Ergathon donation envelopes have been filled out this week and we are hoping to raise a lot of money for the team! Although it is a little over a month away, the day is quickly approaching. This will be the first team event of the year.
We are looking forward to having very productive final weeks of winter training and beginning a new season, uniting with returning rowers and welcoming the wonderful freshmen and novices onto the team.
