This Fall has been quite a busy one at RR, with a great deal of new content on the way (currently in the editorial stages), more traveling to do (this weekend we are headed down to Newport, CA to cover the Newport Autumn Rowing Festival for Rowing News), and a new page added to the RR masthead–the Coaches' Corner page. Your requests have been answered and we've made it easier to find some of the more useful articles for coaching and training on RR by giving them a standalone page, to which we'll add any subsequent articles of a similar nature.
While the Fours Head on the Tideway will feature of host of GB international talent, NARF looks to be a 'mini hub' of international rowing in itself, with much of USRowing's men's squad now located in Southern California, and several 2011 U.S. national team members in the mix this weekend, including Peter and Tom Graves (who represented the U.S. in Bled in the M2x, and who just won their third straight title in the men's championship double at the 2011 Head Of The Charles–see Bryan's interview with Pete here from Rowing News' coverage of the event), and Brian De Regt, who stroked the U.S. LM2x in Slovenia. California and Stanford will also be in action, as will the Connecticut Boat Club junior women, coming across for another shot at a very talented Oakland Strokes team that just edged Marin for the top spot in Boston, while the Marin Junior Men will look to stay dominant.
Also, we have our hopes up for big things this Movember, with the GB squad already sculpting some wicked facial artwork (see Bill Lucas' cancer research fundraising page here, and the official site of GB Rowing for further examples), and we're looking for the best your can muster by the end of the month. Put something together on YouTube, send us the link, and the best of the best will be featured on RR in December.
