The conditions were great for the first race of the day, the Women's 2V8. There was a big delay for the 2nd race of the day (men's 2V8) and the conditions worsened with a strengthening head wind for the Women's Varsity 8 race.

Head Coach Carissa Adams had this to say about the race, "This is a very early season race and we were excited to see both the V8 and JV8 put out a strong showing against the competition.  It is very encouraging to see these results early in the season as we still have a lot of work ahead of us to help improve our performances."
