Our Ridley rowers spent their March Break on the West Coast training. Exceptional weather with a fair bit of sunshine and idyllic water conditions made for a successful Spring Break training camp, here is what Director of Rowing Mr. Dorland had to say about the trip:
On March 18th nineteen athletes (12 boys & 7 girls), three coaches and one parent travelled to Seattle, WA where we spent the weekend hosted generously by the rowers and families of Lakeside High School. Sunday we travelled over to Victoria on the Clipper and then up to Shawnigan Lake School where we ate, trained, ate, trained, ate, slept, trained and ate some more for the next week!
It was an excellent opportunity to jump-start the on-water rowing season with perfect rowing conditions and great racing against Shawnigan. We now resume our training on the waters of Martindale Pond and hope for warm weather and calm water. Check out our web-site ridleyrowing.com for more photographs and video of the training camp!
