Two St. John’s Rowers Competed- and Succeeded- at Breaking Two World Records

Bailey O’Brien and James Miller of St. John’s Jesuit High School teamed up over the weekend to break a world record of longest continuous time on an erg. The current record is 40 hours, 30 minutes. They were successful in their attempt and also managed to break a second record along the way for most meters rowed in twenty-four hours. Their efforts were certainly for the accomplishment of breaking a world record, but they set about it with the intent to raise money for the Toledo Labre program.

National Learn to Row Day is over and we had a very nice turn-out of interested ‘rowers’.  Many of those who participated have already become involved in TRC programs. So if you were not able to attend, TRC does have two more Learn-to-Row events scheduled: one each on July 12 and August 2. See the calendar for details.

This summer’s Adult Beginner’s Program and Junior’s Sculling Camp is under way.  Check with Kristina for more information.
We plan to launch a Corporate League to start one week after the Dragon Boat Festival and ending with a Corporate League Challenge event at the Frogtown Regatta, September 27. Please let Kristina know if there is a corporation or organization that you think would benefit from this… but really, which organization would NOT benefit from the teamwork and fitness of rowing

Spring Masters Training !
Coach Ian Dunn is on the water with the masters 4x each week: check the calendar for details. You can register from the Regatta Central website, and check the calendar for schedule. We would love more masters to join us!
