This spring we had 65 youth rowers register for the spring racing season—thanks to our new Director of Program's zealous outreach effort! The varsity and novice youth rowers began their season by organizing and rigging boats (as dock construction wrapped up). With experienced varsity squads and many fall novices returning, Hamp Crew is likely to be competitive in many categories. Our regatta season starts on April 24 in Holyoke, with races on five consecutive weekends. The regatta season culminates in the USRowing Northeast Youth Rowing Championships on May 21. Read a message about the strong start to the season by the youth captains.
Spring Adult Rowing
The adult masters rowers program was also off to a good start, with 28 competitive advanced rowers and 12 intermediate rowers. The masters have begun their six-month training plan which will take them through Master's Nationals in August. This year's National Regatta is being held in Worcester—and many friends and family intend to take advantage of the in-state location to see some great master's level racing come August.
