October marks the mid-way point of our Fall rowing season and things have been going well thus far. The Boy's program is in full swing (ha?) and we are gearing up for our first competitive race of the season on October 30th at Lake Natoma. The entire Varsity program, boys and girls, will travel to Sacramento and race at the Head of the American against some of the top teams in the Southwest region. This will be the first look at the competition and provide a useful indicator of how training has been progressing. Attached is a video from our first day in small boats where to took out Fours, doubles and singles.

Today we had our first 6k evaluation and things seem to be going well. The piece was rate capped at 22spm for 2k, 24spm for 2k, 26spm for 2k. All things considered, I was really pleased with the performance and look forward to finishing out the week strong. I took some video yesterday of our first time rowing by all 8 doing the acceleration drill.
