National Champs Training in Sunshine State

Winter Work Begins During Break

 

SEBASTIAN, Fla. – The Yale Heavyweights have headed down to the Sunshine State to start the winter training season.

 

"We love coming to training camp down in Florida," said captain Angus Morrison '19. "The conditions on the water are great and so is the weather. It's a valuable training block at this time of year, and it's refreshing to be able to spend a period of time focusing solely on rowing."

 

For the next 10 days, the Elis will put in millage and enjoy the warm climate before returning to New Haven to start the next semester. The Bulldogs typically train on land for the next four to six weeks. However, last year, the team returned to the water in early February.

 

The Bulldogs face their first challenge on March 30 against Brown at Providence. Yale looks to retain the Albert Cup for the 6th year in a row.
