The trip to South Carolina was FRIGID. Oh my lord was it cold. The water would literally freeze on the oars while we were rowing. When we launched for our morning practices, everything was covered in ice! We (the coxswains) couldn’t move the steering because it was frozen in place.
Of course, the last day of the trip was warmer than the other days. (Above freezing for once!) We had a sort of “race” in the afternoon with mixed lineups. All of the coxswains wore flannel shirts!!!
Lastly, here is a video of the seniors jumping into the FREEZING water. They’re crazy.
PS I’m totally in denial about actually having homework to do. I keep thinking I’m still on break. But of course, I’m definitely not. Middle East history reading is calling my name. Blah.
PPS It doesn’t look that the trip was that cold from these pictures (and especially the video). But I promise it was! Check out these pictures that the local newspaper took. I’m the puff. I’m not normally that big. I’m just wearing: under armor shirt, long sleeved shirt, vest, fleece, puffer jacket, nor’easter jacket, spandex tights, patagonia r1s, sweatpants, nor’easter pants. Yea, no big deal.
