The Rowers: 17 plus three coxes reported for duty. One rower sculled alongside us and Samantha (cox) went in the coaching launch. Shannon took ‘Endurance’ and Eric L took the ‘Anacostia Queen’.
The Workout: The focus to-day was on racing starts. We warmed up with pick drill as usual down to the ‘Barry’, then we did five minutes of ‘legs only’ to remind us of what we had learnt last week. Then we practiced racing starts, building up from the first stroke to the first 20 strokes. We spun downstream of South Capital Street Bridge and came home in three pieces – each starting with a start plus two minutes at 24-26 SPM. This was done with the two boats side by side, and ‘Endurance’ won all three.
The Water: Calm; a little debris
