47th Head of the Charles

Working for ESPN does have its perks…check out this feature put together for ESPNBoston.com promoting the 47th Head of the Charles Regatta in Boston, MA this weekend. I had a lot of fun working with the producer, Stacy Gitlin who also rows in the Hartford, CT area. Kudos to her for braving the rain and early morning to shoot the footage…

This will be my second time to race the Head of the Charles, one of–if not the–largest regattas in the world. I think it’s where I was first “hooked” into racing (last year I was in a Club Four with Riverfront). 

This year, I’m racing in the Women’s Champ Double on Saturday (3:17pm, Bow #8) with Frederique Garnier out of Union Boat Club. It’s our first time in a boat together, but should be a good race. On Sunday, I’ve been thrown into the Director’s Challenge Women’s Quad (10:03am, Bow #5) with three other women hailing from Connecticut and Washington, D.C. The weather forecast looks solid, and there’s something wonderful about Boston in the fall. It’s going to be a great weekend.
