SHS vs Farmington 4/30/11 94 photos
A tough day of racing on the river in Farmington. SHS meets one of the team's top rivals for a number of very tight races. Novice boys and BV3 continue their streak of wins in the CPSRA league.
SHS vs Avon at the Seaport 4/23/11 48 photos
A day with wind and heavy rain, but the teams race anyway. The rowers hang tough and everyone gets a race in. Photography gets cut short by the unfortunate dunking of the camera in the Mystic River.
A cool and windy afternoon session with Coach Sarah and Varsity Girls. They run out into the channel and, on the return to the Seaport, Coach Sarah has the boats do some of her "special" workouts: Can-Can and Flying Nun.
Early Morning with Varsity 4/21/11 25 photos
The water is still and smooth and the coaches take the boats on a long row out to the edge of Long Island Sound on another vacation week morning.
The rowers work hard and are treated to seals off Ram Island.
Reasonable weather makes decent water conditions for racing north of the Seaport for one of the few mid-week regattas. All boats race today and the event includes a solid showing from the Novices (plus war paint!).
Early Morning with Varsity Girls 4/19/11 78 photos
Vacation week at the Seaport for 5:30 in the morning in the cool stillness. A little hard to wake up and get going for the Varsity Girls, but beautiful out on the water. The Girls are joined by Graham Hutter for long pieces, pairs racing, and sticks?!.

The first practice of vacation week. Monday aftenoon, cool and blustery.

Cold Saturday practice 3/26/11 61 photos
A very chilly, windy Saturday morning. But the team toughs out a long, wet practice. The Novices come to understand what proper dress is and how to handle the boats with the able assistance of some Varsity rowers on loan from Sarah.
Novices in the water 3/22/11 26 photos
A day for the entire team to get on the water. The Novices have their first chance to get in a boat. But high winds and brisk currents make it tricky for the new rowers and their coaches.
Novices at the Seaport 3/19/11 25 photos
A Saturday practice for Varsity and a visit to the Seaport for the Novices to get a look at the boats, have a chance to handle them and start getting a taste of what it is all about. 14 Novices to hold up a boat is about right!
Eddie Gets Cake 3/18/11 4 photos
Eddie Bokowski has a birthday!
But how do you eat the cake without forks or plates?
Not a problem at crew...
FINALLY, back at the Seaport with the boats to get them set to launch. Get them out onto the slings, attach the riggers. make sure everything is properly in place and carry them down to the docks to be ready to go.
