Video: 2014-2015 Marin Rowing Association Varsity Men Doin' Work

While the fall rowing season in the U.S. may be largely at an end, the Marin junior men's program are continuing to log the miles that make champions. Having narrowly lost the Men's Youth Eight event at the 2014 Head Of The Charles to Bay Area rival Oakland Strokes (the East Bay crew finishing just over one second ahead of Marin, who came in as defending champions), the MRA varsity men bounced back at the Head of the American (held at Lake Natoma, just outside Sacramento, California) the following weekend, winning the men's junior eight event over Southern California's Newport Aquatic Center by roughly nine seconds (though NAC placed three crews in the top 10, taking second, third, and eighth place—and, given the return of head coach Nick D'Antoni to Newport, they'll be a team to watch going forward this year).



Have you been grinding out the low-rate, long distance miles as we gear up for winter? Send us your training videos to rowingrelated [at] gmail [dot] com, send us your suggestions via Twitter, or get in touch via our Facebook or Google+ pages, and we'll put together a list for fall 2014 (erg playlist suggestions welcome). Also, still to come: Our analysis of the fall racing season, with a view toward the leaders heading into winter training.

    Indeed—some clips from the above are in Andrew Lennox's earlier videos. This montage is new, though.
