2017 Stotesbury Regatta

Visitation Crew started the Stotesbury Regatta with a courageous performance by our Freshman 8, rowing with an knee injury and broken steering to finish 27th of 40 boats. Next up, 2V rowed hard to finish 10th in the heat and moved on to finish 5th in the semi-final. In very large event, our 4 was seeded 46th of 60 boats and finished 23rd. And finally, our 1V rowed well to finish 21st. Alumnae Katherine McCarthy and Maggie Fletcher came to visit the tent.

Upon arriving on the scenic shores of Lake Marion, everyone settled into bunkhouses and unloaded and rigged boats. Over the next 4 days, they rowed and rowed and rowed and got a warm South Carolina welcome at Mass at Our Lady of Hope church.

2016 Champ Camp

The Freshman team held a Champ Camp here in DC with some extended sessions on the Potomac and at Visitation. On the water, they enjoyed longer practices and spent time rowing at sixes and getting comfortable rowing all eight. The extra sessions helped solidify what they had learned in the first couple weeks of practice and made all the difference in the first race.
