San Diego 04:
As always, thanks to Tom Ryerson for the awesome high-res photos.
The Men's varsity 8 A-boat went to the San Diego crew classic. This was our first race after schooling Texas down in Austin after spring break.
Our first race was on Saturday Morning at 7:30am.
Here's the boat and Lee in his apron. I forget why all the coxswains had them, I think it had to do something with the lane assignments but I never found out.
Our first real spring race and we owned the course for the first 1500m. Out of the blue, UC Irvine past us with a fantastic sprint at the end of the race. We finished 2nd by a hair and made it into the Grand Finals on Sunday.

The race is on. Colorado is in lane 6 - the worst possible lane assignment.
It looks like we're still in contention!
It was a sweet race and a excellent weekend. We headed out to the beach after our race first race on Saturday.
