Jon Crispin's Notebook

Rowing

Posted in Boats, People, Sport, Transportation by joncrispin on 31/10/2013

I used to shoot a lot of rowing.  I started in Ithaca while shooting sports for Cornell and Ithaca College.  And for many years I shot the annual Harvard/Yale Regatta on the Thames River in New London, CT.  I have such a great respect for these athletes and their dedication to training and competing.  This morning I was up way before first light to shoot some of the UMASS rowers as they were preparing for a competition this weekend.

Here is a shot of the coxswain in a 4+.  It was barely light when I shot this and when we left the dock it was 39 degrees.

These women are on the water 6 days a week way before most people are out of bed.  Title IX is the greatest!

Big thanks to Megan McHugh for piloting me around the Connecticut River.  She was really nice and it was so great to have an opportunity to be on the water again.

    Great pictures, I love the low fog over the water. Had a fog like that in the park across the street from my daughter’s bus stop yesterday morning.
