When you’re out for a row and some people think they’re cool and throw a huge wake at you.
This is the boat that fell off our trailer on the way back from San Diego Crew Classic, being laid down in the water at the regatta for the last race of its life as a shell. I’m threetard here.
The bow and stern are smashed from impact now. I feel like we should have some sort of decommissioning ceremony for it or something.
Part of me wishes that it was one of the womens team’s shells that fell off, since they’re NCAA/varsity/funded/oh-so-better-than-us-except-not-really and get their boats for free anyway. This is a huge blow for us as a club program.
A damn shame.
ahh so parallel

All about the coxswains and the calls I plan on borrowing from them.
- “Absorb them!”
- “Finish”, “on the legs”, “nice and long”, “finish the strokes” – back to basics.
- “We have to clear them…NOW!”
- “Don’t fucking sit!” – I laughed after this was said because the announcers actually apologized for the “language”.
- “Keep pushing them back”, “push them together.” – said by Oskar towards the end.
- “Open up the distance.”
- “Hold the legs, press and send.”
- “Fucking tenacious.” – absolutely stealing this.
- “Loooad together, send!”
- “At our best!”
- “Send it together, in with Malcolm!” – really love this call to remind the back seven to follow the stroke.
- “2 minutes! Relentless! Relentless! Relentless! Relentless! Relentless!” – amazing hearing this call by Oskar with two minutes to go.
