Rowing in Spain!

This summer, Phoebe was invited to row at the 2014 US Rowing Junior Women’s National Team Camp at Connecticut College. The goal of the camp is to identify athletes with potential early in their rowing careers and put them in an environment where they can learn, grow, and represent the USA in suitably competitive domestic and/or international training and racing opportunities. This will well position them to understand the process behind being selected for and contending for a World Championship.

After about two weeks, she sent us a one word text: SPAIN

Which meant this! —




Lake of Banyoles was the rowing location for the 1992 Olympics, hosted by Barcelona, and the World Rowing Championships in 2004. It’s a popular training location for many foreign rowers, and was also the site for the 1991 Junior World Rowing Championships.




Practice, practice, practice…
