This summer saw Riverside racing all over the country and the world, and we’re going to do our best to recap it all for you!
Andy Sayles comes to Riverside most recently from upstream at Community Rowing, where he coaches the junior boys. He was also a summer member at Riverside with the men’s sweep team in 2011. Though he has been with the team since the spring, we have yet to formally issue his welcome interview. Welcome, Andy!
This month, Riverside High Performance Group athletes and independent scullers competed at the USRowing Senior Trials, with hopes of winning races and earning their spots on the US National team this summer. Ultimately, there were two winning crews wearing blue and white stripes: the Senior and U23 Men’s Lightweight Pairs.
This spring Riverside Boat Club welcomed a new coach for the HPG group.
The high performance group competed at the USRowing Spring Speed orders and Trials 1 and 2 in April and May of this year.
Riverside celebrated its 50th anniversary in 1919 with a rousing banquet in its second floor hall. The celebrants ranged from past and current members to the Mayor of Cambridge, the presidents of other clubs and Harvard’s rowing coach.
