CFSBK at Craftsbury Sculling Center
Editor’s Note: Two weeks ago, Coach Nick, Mark M., and Jude G. participated in a four-day intensive sculling camp at Craftsbury Sculling Center in Vermont. Today we’re very excited to bring you Jude’s report on the experience. Thanks, Jude!
Last week I had the chance to spend several days at Craftsbury Outdoor Center in Vermont. It was an incredible experience, and I’m looking forward to returning next summer.
We spent our days in a spectacular setting, rowing several times each day on a gorgeous New England lake. Between sessions on the water, there was time to hang out and have a great time with rowers who were visiting from all over the country. It was a fantastic week and the return to the erg has been difficult (actually the return from rural New England has been really difficult).
I’ve participated in Nick’s program for CRASH-B’s twice and have competed in Boston with the CFSBK team. The physical challenge and camaraderie of the CFSBK group is terrific, and I’ll continue to enroll and complain about the workouts. However, getting the opportunity to take the skills I’ve learned from training with Nick to get off the erg and into a scull at Craftsbury was simply one of the best experiences and what I hope will be a life-long pursuit of learning to scull.
CFSBK is an incredible community, which has been noted by lots of people that have had the chance to spend years or even just a class at the gym. Although I am grateful for the opportunity to have a place that continues to challenge me physically, I am especially thankful for the adventures beyond Degraw Street that have been presented, and I hope to see more CFSBK friends at Craftsbury next year.
42,195m. You read that right.
Last year, CFSBK hosted a 1/2 Marathon Row. This year, we’ve decided not to half-ass it again, and to go All. The. Way.
We will host our first Marathon Row on Sunday, July 24th, at 2:15. There will be three categories:
- Single Scull: You do the whole marathon yourself
- Double Sculls: You and one partner divvy up the marathon however you want; you could each do one 21,098m block, or do multiple shorter pieces
- Quadruple Sculls: You and three other people divvy up the marathon however you want – you could each row one 10,549m block, or do multiple shorter pieces
The enrollment fee is $60 per person. We will donate half the fee – and anything else you can raise – to Row New York, which teaches competitive rowing to kids in under-resourced communities. Head over to the Crowdrise page to start raising money!
