America Rows Regatta, Baltimore

Blair Crew had a great day in Baltimore on Sunday at the America Rows Regatta celebrating diversity in rowing.  The Baltimore Rowing Club hosted a number of crews from around the region and race day was beautiful, sunny and it seemed unreal that this same city has been experiencing such troubles and anguish this past week.

Among the crews attending were the clubs of Baltimore, Annapolis, Capital, Washington Rowing School and Freedom Rowers, and high school teams like Blair, Seton, Institute of Notre Dame and Roland Park Country Day School.
The big rowing clubs Annapolis and Baltimore dominated the races, but Blair teams rowed well and were pleased with their performances.  The day was capped off by a fun seven boat coxswain’s race. This 500 meter sprint race was raced by coxswains and the Blair team narrowly missed winning after being run into!    -Coach Hope

Clean the Stream 2014

Blair Crew had a great clean up on a beautiful Saturday on Northwest Branch/Rachel Carson trail. The team hauled out several rubber tires; excavated playground equipment; unearthed a metal couch frame and locker and LOTS of plastic.
Thanks to the group who turned out on Saturday:  Rowers Aidan, Aidan, Ajay, Ben, Chris, Clayton, Esther, Leah, Martha, Meggie, Michelle, Nick, Nico, and Pierre and Parents Greg, Majolaine, Rebecca (and friend), Stephanie, and Tom.  Valiant  trash retrieval efforts were made by those both with and without waders! Special thanks also to Anne Spielberg who organized the effort for Blair Crew and James Graham at Neighbors of the Northwest Branch who organized the clean-up, provided all the equipment, and was there from beginning to end.
