Tuesday Edition VOTW: California v. Nereus, Henley 2011, and Movember Begins
This week's (slightly delayed) VOTW comes to us from the 2011 Henley Royal Regatta, and features the undefeated Cal frosh eight taking on Nereus in the Temple Challenge Cup final on Sunday, 3rd July. The video is shot from the official's launch, and gives the viewer both a sense of just how good the Bears were last season, as well as a virtual tour of the HRR course, form start to finish. For more content about Henley 2011, check out the 'On The Water' series–personal take on the regatta and the racing–that we put together with Matt Miller of Virginia men's rowing (The UVa men raced to Saturday in the Temple, when they were defeated by Nereus).
Also, today marks the first day of Movember, giving men everywhere an excuse to grow facial hair in order to raise awareness for prostate cancer research. See below for some inspiration:
CHALLENGE TO ROWERS: SUBMIT YOUR OWN Movember video to RR!
Here at RR, we are awaiting attempts from rowers to come up with quality Movember videos–break out the cameras, and get in touch via our contact page, or via Twitter (twitter.com/rowingrelated) with submissions, and the top Movember rowing spot will be posted as an RR feature in December.
