This past weekend in place of Governor's Cup, here in Athens the Ohio University Crews organized a mock regatta as previously mentioned. The regatta ran extremely smooth for being put together in six hours; so well that we had rowers from other schools ask us to host regattas here in Athens more regularly. We had multiple 1st place finishes with several of our boats posting PRs. Everyone is continuing to improve and all our boats are looking very strong as we inch closer to Dad Vails on May 12.
Governor's Cup 2012:
As previously noted both the Men's Crew and Women's Crew were to be traveling to Charleston, WV this weekend for the annual Governor's Cup. The regatta director called our president this morning to inform us that the regatta has been CANCELED due to extreme high water levels and debris scattered about the course.
A few teams however were already down in Charleston and instead of forcing a wasted trip upon them, we have organized a scrimmage to take place out on Dow Lake at Strouds State Park in Athens.
