Set in sunny southern California, last week’s San Diego Crew Classic was a treat for those of us at Resolute who made the cross country trek from cold and snowy New England. The regatta draws over 4,000 participants annually from 130 programs including juniors, collegiate, alumni, masters and adaptive rowers across the United States. For many, the SDCC is a marked heralding of spring and rowing season as it maintains its place as the first main regatta of the year.
Gene and Casey will be at the Head of the Hooch Regatta this weekend November 3rd and 4th, 2012. While this weekend’s the weather looks to be beautiful for racing, the Head of the Hooch is supporting rowing communities affected by Hurricane Sandy.

Here in Bristol we got pretty lucky with Hurricane Sandy. The lights flickered a bit but never went out and there was no damage at the shop. Others were not so lucky and our thoughts are with all those affected by the storm.
Now that the storm has passed and clean up is underway our good friend Mike Davenport from RowingTalks sent us this great blog post: After Super Storm Sandy: 7 steps you must take before you row again.
