Lowell, MA/May 12-13: The Amber Zapatka Memorial Regatta on the 2000-meter Merrimack River Course includes high school programs such as Bay View and public high schools, as well as juniors who are rowing for clubs, which is our own NBC Scholastic. Saturday's somewhat soggy weather was not as bad as expected with a headwind that eventually became a whimper.
Amsterdam/March 10-11: This is a recap from the Heineken Roeivierkamp on the Amstel. Right up until the day before eight left for Amsterdam, there was still doubt that the entire 5K course would be free of ice. It was a very cold winter in Europe and, for the first time since 2011, the inner canals of Amsterdam were thick enough for skating. Well, mostly thick enough. A Dutch friend of Dan Gorriaran said that there were over 50 incidents of people falling through the ice. But, the Dutch are a hearty bunch and no one seemed to care all that much. The people who fell through just pulled themselves out and everyone else just skated on, no big deal.
