This morning wrapped up this year’s edition of US Rowing Mega Trials (officially known as Under 19, Under 23, Para, and Senior Trials III, but that sounds far less exciting). For the Green Racing Project, this regatta included Trials for the Senior Men’s Quadruple Sculls and Double Sculls as well as all of our U23 Sculling boats that are training at the Center for the summer racing season. We had three boats qualify for U23 World Rowing Championships in the U23 Men's Double Sculls, U23 Men's Quadruple Sculls, and U23 Lightweight Women's Double Sculls.

In our M4x we had Lucas Bellows, Kevin Meador, Wes Vear, and Nathan Lado. In the M2x Andy Raitto teamed up with former GRP Rower Tom Graves who came back to Craftsbury for a week to train in the double leading up to trials. On the ...
