Video Of The Week: Head Race Training with Maritime Rowing
It's Charles week! In honor of that most famous parade through the heart of Boston, we're taking a look at the hard work that it takes to get there. Maritime Rowing Club's men's masters crew is entered in the men's club eight event for Saturday afternoon, and features 2009 USRowing U23 national teamer Nate Kelly (formerly of Trinity College) in the stroke seat, and former junior and U23 national team oarsman Brendan McEwan (a Georgetown alum) in the six seat. Not only does the above video involve some nifty editing and camera work, it sums of the kind of fall training that every crew headed to Cambridge this weekend will have done in preparation for the biggest rowing event in the U.S. For more information on the Head Of The Charles—now just a few short days away—visit their official website, and for entries and schedules, head over to RegattaCentral.
Over the past few days, we've received some pretty outstanding rowing recruiting videos from you, our beloved audience—look for more videos to be featured soon here on RR, and if you've yet to submit a video that you think is worthy of a look, then don't be shy.
Also coming up—we'll connect with Sean Wolf, the cagey veteran of Cambridge, on what he feels is the most challenging part of the Charles, and how to handle it.
