Berkeley High Crew is happy to be hosting our annual Spring Learn-to-Row Day on Saturday, May 10, 2014 at 9:00 AM.   Participants will:

  • Learn the basics of rowing from Berkeley High coaches
  • Practice rowing on land on a rowing machine
  • Row on the water in our training barge
  • Meet current Berkeley High rowers and coxswains
  • Learn about the rowing team at Berkeley High School
  • Have Fun!

Light snacks will be provided, but we encourage everyone to bring a water bottle and hat (for sun protection) and to wear sunscreen.  Dress in layers and wear comfortable, athletic clothing – sweatpants or shorts are fine. (Avoid baggy, basketball-style shorts because they can get caught in the equipment.)

The Learn-to-Row Day is free, but please RSVP.  More information is available on our Learn-to-Row Day page. Still have questions?  Email us: summercamps@berkeleyhighcrew.org

Date: Saturday, May 10, 2014
Time: 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Location: Jack London Aquatic Center (115 Embarcadero, Oakland)

Men's Novice Quad
Berkeley High’s Men’s Novice Quad

Berkeley High raced at Lake Merced for the second time in 2014 and showed that the team is continuing to build speed midway through the spring racing season.  The Jackets posted victories in the Men’s Varsity and Novice Quads and JV8, and in the Women’s Frosh 8.

The Men’s Varsity Quad was a particularly exciting race, with Berkeley’s scullers finishing first in a field of seven boats and edging out a skilled crew from River City by just three-tenths of a second.

Complete regatta results are on row2k.

Up next is the 510 Sprints, which Berkeley High will host on Sunday, April 6th.  Participating crews include Artemis, Central Valley, Deep Water, Humboldt, Los Gatos, North Bay, Oakland Tech, Pacific, Palo Alto, and Serra HS.
