Shook it up a little bit this regatta and rowed a Lightweight 8 this time. Zack still rowing the stroke seat. They came in 4th, with their goal of staying close to TC Williams. They were within 6 seconds. Making strides, making strides.
Finally some nice sunny weather and good rowing!
I have never in my life seen a group of boys as comfortable with intimacy as these boys. Every regatta they are like a big pile of puppies, snuggling under the tent all on top of each other. There are definitely no personal space issues here. As a matter of fact, we've been trying to determine if issues of "purple" apply to the boys. (boys are blue, girls are pink - if they mix together to closely they make purple. No purple allowed) If they were boys and girls we wouldn't allow it, but if it's all boys or all girls, should we intervene? Personally it doesn't bother me, I think it's kinda cute. I'm glad they are all that comfortable with each other.
