A great day of racing. The sky opened up for beautiful weather between storms, proving once again that Newport Harbor is the best place to row in the West Coast!

Race results here. Full race video here.

Alumni and supporters of UCI Rowing, including Henry T. Nicholas, III himself, were aboard the Ocean Explorer to watch the races up close at the finish line. A second boat was full of scholarship recipients from the Henery T. Nicholas, III Foundation – a great way to introduce a new generation to the wonderful sport of rowing!

We had over 200 guests at our alumni brunch at the Back Bay Bistro, including student-athletes and many of their parents and family members. Our silent auction help raise funds to send the team to ACRA national championships in Georgia at the end of the season!

Thanks to all of our donors and supports, especially Henry T. Nicholas, III and Christian Bakewell for their generous contributions!
