Will The Rowing World Championships Affect HOCR?
Interesting point brought up in an article for the Rowing News magazine this month. With the 2010 Rowing World Championships being held later than usual this year (Oct. 31 to Nov. 7) in Lake Karapiro, New Zealand, there will be an opportunity for collegiate crews to showcase themselves better at the prestigious Head of the Charles Regatta, which takes place on Oct. 24 in Cambridge, Mass.
Traditionally, the top international crews battle for the top times and then the collegiate teams judge themselves based on their finish. But this year, crews like Washington have a chance to capture a win outright.
"It's the year of the college, which opens it up again," said Fred Schoch, executive director of the Head of the Charles. "I remember in the '80s when the Naval Academy won the Charles three years in a row, which was sort of their heyday."
The Huskies are close to finalizing their roster for the Head of the Charles, which they will announce next week.
