Fall Season Underway

With school back in session after a relaxing summer break, Saltonstall Boathouse is once again abuzz with activity from fall season crews. Although boats do not compete interscholastically, many returning team members are training hard to improve their strength, stamina and technique for the spring season. A significant number of rowers and coxswains from last spring’s wildly successful boys and girls eights graduated in the Class of 2008–on the boys varsity, seven of eighteen graduated; for the girls varsity, twelve of eighteen graduated.  These departures have opened up many seats on the upper boats, and competition is heating up.

Looking ahead to October, a number of Exonians will attend the Head of the Charles Regatta from October 18-19 in Cambridge, MA as competitors and spectators.  The Exeter Association of New England has once again reserved a tent in Reunion Village next to Weeks Footbridge, one of the best places to view passing crews.  Admission to Reunion Village is $1.00, with other refreshments available for purchase inside.  The village will be open from 8AM-5PM on Saturday and 8AM-4PM on Sunday.  See the event page at the Alumni/ae website for more information.  A listing of Exeter graduates competing in the regatta will be published before the regatta, please contact me if you or a friend is seeded.
