I have some landscape format photos that are too wide to post. I'd appreciate it if someone could PM me with instructions on how to resize them in Google photos.

Re: Open Water Rowing

No, that wasn't the worst part. The worst was hearing the comments from the regulars that this was best rowing conditions ever at this race! What? It gets WORSE? I can't say that I thoroughly enjoyed it, but then again I can't say that I won't be back to try again next year. Especially since Anne H...

I have some good pictures from the Head of the Weir but I need help in resizing them so they are less than 1025 pixels wide. They are hosted on Google Photos. Any suggestions?

Re: Open Water Rowing

After several years of open water races I’ve finally figured out how to win. Enter races where there is no other competition. That’s what I did a few weeks ago at the Mighty Merrimack Race hosted by Lowell’s Boat Shop where they have made wooden dories and boats by hand for the last 225 years (http:...

Re: Training for long distance on water

That sounds like a long, fun race. BTW it's in Boston England if anyone was first confused like I was. In addition to your fitness you should also practice OTW in adverse conditions. The route looks fairly sheltered but experience in a cross chop will be useful as well as a long row in the rain. Bot...
