2015 Rowing Blog; Volume XI
For the second year in a row, members of Hamilton College's rowing teams are providing daily updates from the teams' spring trip. With the teams traveling from Tennessee to New Jersey (by bus, not by boat) we'll have three editions today, including the 11th edition, courtesy of Gaby Troya '18.
Wow, this trip flew by! We started off Thursday (our last full day in Tennessee) by getting on the bus at 7 a.m. and going for a great row, further preparing us for our race on Saturday. Everyone stayed focused and put in maximum effort. Back at the hotel we had an awesome lunch thanks to Donna. Pizza bagels!
It hit about 75 degrees and was sunny all afternoon – the warmest day so far. Not quite sure what it was, but rowers said that they smelled brown sugar on the river. The afternoon row was even stronger. We saw real improvement over the course of just one day. The day cooled off with some delicious dinner, Sonic shakes and a fun round of Settlers of Catan.
