Checking In With The Canadian Men's 8+
The Huskies will be without two of their top rowers when they head to the Head of the Charles Regatta this weekend. That's because Conlin McCabe and Anthony Jacob will be with Rowing Canada in New Zealand for the World Championships at Lake Karapiro.
One go-to stop for UW rowing fans should be Will Crothers' blog. The former Husky stroke is currently in New Zealand with the men's Canadian 8 and has posted pictures on site from Lake Karapiro.
There's also an interesting story from the team's trip to a local sheep farm, which was also chronicled in a daily New Zealand newspaper. The Kiwi farmhands had the Canadians take turns with some simple farm chores, not exactly easy for the B.C. and Ontario Huskies on the team.
"This is harder than it looks. I'm from Brockville, Ontario, so I'm a city boy and not used to farm life, but I loved this today," said McCabe.
We'll continue to link stories/results from all the Huskies who are competing in the World Championships, so stay tuned to the Dawg Blawg.
