Awesome video of Cal vs. Stanford from Rowing Related

This is a great video of a very close men’s eights race.  Cal vs. Stanford at Redwood Shores.  I’ve raced there many times myself.  It’s amazing how far west coast rowing has come in the last 10 years, especially Stanford.  Less than 1/2 length of overlap from start to finish.  For the Crossfitters out there that would be like rowing a Concept2 at no lower than 35 strokes per minute for 5-1/2 minutes and finishing within 1 second of the person next to you.  Amazing performance.

Thanks to Rowing Related for the post:  http://www.rowingrelated.com/2011/02/video-of-week-2008-cal-stanford-dual.html
