Rowers, Ever Green Boat Club is organizing a new type of regatta, the Alumni Sprints, to be held on the old collegiate racecourse in Greenwich, Connecticut on April 27. This race allows college alumni/ae, regardless of current affiliation, to race a 1000m sprint under their college alumni banner, similar to how the Alumni Eights works at the Head of the Charles.
We will have participation from Boston University, Brown, Cambridge, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Oxford, Wisconsin, and are looking for others! There may also be exhibition racing by some “big names” from the sport who are based in the area. USRowing has even set up a special Alumni Club type of membership that covers both this regatta and the Head of the Charles, to make it easier for alums who are not currently affiliated with a rowing club.
I will be racing my single as well as in Ever Green (Dartmouth Alumni) team boats, and I hope to see some of you there.
Registration opens tomorrow (March 2) on RegattaCentral, and space is limited due to the unique format!
P.S. we are also looking for available USRowing-certified referees to participate, as they are in short supply during the spring racing season! If you are one and are interested, please reply to this post. Thanks.
