I’ve just returned from Boston where I filled a seat in a friend’s crew and raced in the Head of the Charles. It is a fantastic event and well worth going to if you can get an entry.

After the racing I had the good fortune to visit a friend at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut.

There were a number of rowing related items to see when we had a quick tour of St Anthony’s Hall, dinner at Mory’s, and a tour of the largest collection of rowing memorabilia in the world*.


Of course there was a Fairbairn trophy oar as well…


*probably the largest!  ; )
