Overview and Welcome from the Team:
Virginia Rowing represents the University of Virginia at races all over the United States and even in Europe. We recruit high school athletes as well as on-Grounds athletes. Those recruits range from high school rowers who have won scholastic national rowing championships to those who arrive on Grounds having never seen a rowing shell.
Wahoo Henley and 50 years of Women’s Rowing Celebration coming up!
On November 11 we will have two awesome events happening:
Free of charge and open to the public – at 10:30am start to the head race between Navy, UNC, Georgetown and UVA men’s teams for a 3.2 head race from “The Rock” to the “1k” with danger-close fly by on the dock. Best spectating from Boathouse Grounds.
Starting at 1:30pm we will have Henley Style Dual Racing over 1,000 meters “on the course” with double-elimination bracket. Bracket seeded based on headracing results form the morning. Best spectating is from the Church across Earlysville Road Bridge!
In the evening (private event) we will have our alumni reunion party for women’s and men’s alumni; this year we will celebrate 50 years of women’s rowing at UVA.
