Greenwich Cove hosts first annual Alumni Sprints [Slideshow]

 

Alumni rowers made history in Greenwich Cove Saturday by inaugurating the first USRowing-sanctioned regatta specifically devoted to alumni racing.

The Alumni Sprints welcomed more than 100 alumni of Boston University, Brown, Wisconsin, Williams, Oxford, Cambridge, Princeton, Dartmouth, Northeastern, Duke, the United States Military Academy, Yale, Georgetown and New Zealand’s University of Otago.

Dartmouth’s Ever Green Boat Club and Princeton’s Fat Cars each won five events, while Oxford, Cambridge and Boston University each won events.

In the regatta’s featured race, the Men’s Open Eight, Northeastern alumni were victorious in a photo finish, edging out Ever Green Boat Club by only four-tenths of a second.

For its achievement across all events, Ever Green Boat Club was awarded the first Alumni Sprints Team Points Trophy.

Greenwich Post photographer John Ferris Robben was at the event and his photos are in the slideshow above this article.
