  1. This follow up from Erik Zehender

    This news may be of interest. U of M is actually going to offer five camps, including one for women cancer survivors. See the U of M website for more details. I’m assuming members know that a first high school rower from our area has been recruited to row for MSU, earning a full ride scholarship to college.

    Also, I have a pic or two from our last regatta – over 100 boats entered mostly from downstate high schools Northville, Saline, Skyline, Forest Hills, Rockford, Grand Rapids, and even Michigan Tech!

    The University of Michigan Men’s Rowing Team is proud to partner with the Fountain Point Resort to offer a series of junior and masters rowing camps on Lake Leelanau, near Traverse City, in scenic Northern Michigan. Led by Head Coach Gregg Hartsuff, Associate Head Coach Charley Sullivan and Freshman Coach Russell Giacobbe, these series of camps are designed to offer a variety of rowers the opportunity to improve their rowing technique and knowledge under the direction of one of the country’s most successful coaching teams. Each camp will also feature a unique coaching mentorship program for a limited number of junior and masters coaches who will study and ride along with the Michigan staff during the camp.
