Row2K points to this awesome video shot from the Princeton Heavyweight Men’s eight during the Championship Eight event at this fall’s Head of the Charles Regatta. This gives a great sense of what it is like to row at full speed in an elite boat — and the crash with the U. Penn eight is pretty awesome to watch too. You can hear the Princeton coxswain warn the Penn boat out of the way, call for a sprint to pass, and then blam! Chaos. I miss big boat rowing, sculling alone doesn’t have anything close to the exhilaration of rowing with eight other people at full speed. Maybe next year, I just got off the water here in Cotuit, rowing solo around the bay in my single, trying to get into fighting shape and work through a shoulder injury.
