Men's Crew - Mon, Oct. 13, 2014
October 12, 2014 Ė The Cal Maritime menís crew team traveled West Sacramento for the Head of the Port, a 5,000-meter regatta in the shipping channel that leads to the port. The course had windy conditions the entire day, with winds from 15 to 24 miles per hour, making for difficult rowing conditions for all crews. The entire team showed great resilience in dealing with the harsh conditions and powered through to strong finishes in both of its races. The Keelhaulers competed with three entries in the menís open four and two entries in the menís open eight. In the menís open four, the menís varsity ďAĒ boat finished second among eleven entries, the menís varsity ďBĒ boat finished fifth, and the menís varsity lightweight four finished tenth in a field comprised mostly of heavyweight entries. In the menís open eight, which also had eleven entries, the Keelhaulersí ďAĒ boat finished first among collegiate entries and second overall, and the ďBĒ boat, made up entirely of novice, finished fourth among collegiate entries and fifth overall. The varsity four travels to Boston this week for the 50th annual Head of the Charles Regatta while the rest of the team prepares for the Head of the American on October 25th.
