Our Opening Days bring some 27 new rowers and coxswains to the Navy for our 2 week “try it out” session. With several of our juniors abroad this term, we’re thrilled with the turnout! Jumpy the seal, the big bald eagle and a great picnic at Popham Beach have been pretty enticing for the new group.
The upper boats have been hard at work preparing for racing in Oct. Both our men and women earned guaranteed entries in the college fours at the Charles, the men with a repeat medal performance at 5th place and the women by winning the gold! Those two boats will be joined by men’s and women’s alumni boats in the Club Four. We are also racing at the Textile and Snake regattas ahead of the Charles.
Inquiries from prospective students have been dramatically up this year and we encourage any of you who may be considering Bowdoin for study and rowing to contact Coach Birney.
Watch for updates here as the fall progresses.
