The U-tube feed is showing an FES Rowing (functional electrical stimulation) event from Boston MA in tandem with early WRIC-Long Beach pararower flights. We’re piping it to the big screen via AppleTV.

Absolutely startling audio spike from that feed @ 12:00PM EST. I jumped about a foot off the sofa and the dogs hid in the bedroom. Took me forever to find the remote and pot it down. Effing amateur hour!!

Andy Benko was 6:05 and won "easily"
the fastest masters time 6:01 by Cesar Morales 43+
Carol Woodward won well as hoped/expected and Hubby Rod was second in 6:57 as he predicted last week
The Germans are winning heaps - both the <19y as well as others

2 minutes later:

Looked for Doc Baker (#38) in the 500 sprint comp. Camera never found him. Believe he went 1:17.

Mr. Baker rowed 1:17 and some change on the 500M. He was right next to me. Very nice gentleman; awesome time!

There are some crazily fast times there.

I'm trying to convince my wife that we should go to Paris next year for our wedding anniversary but I have slightly shot myself in the foot as we have been twice before and I have already mentioned that I'm not bothered about going back again. I have got a year to convince her

The Open Men's race in Long Beach arguably was the second strongest such event in indoor history. In 2002, when Crash-Bs had heats and a final, 21 rowers went sub-6 in the heat, which was won by Jamie Schroeder in 5:52.0. The same number went sub-6 in Long Beach, which was won by Ollie Zeider in a stonking, considerably faster 5:42.6. However, to put the 2002 races in perspective, Schroeder came back later in the day to win the final in 5:50.3. That's two world-class 2ks within a few hours of each other. Moreover, there were 277 competitors in the 2002 race as opposed to 29 in Long Beach. An astonishing 60 rowers in the heat were under 6:10 (not all of them qualified for and/or chose to row in the final).

As for the Open Women's race, to the best of my knowledge it was the strongest in indoor history by a long shot. 23 women in it went sub-7:00. 20 of them were sub-6:50.

Props to everyone who competed.

This would be one time I might be able to convince my wife to go to a rowing competition. We've only been to Paris once and loved it! I've long planned (for year) to want to compete at 55 in either the Crash-Bs or possibly the WRICs. Then, just last week, my stepson announces he's getting married -- just secured the venue -- the last week of February in 2020. Same week as the WRICs will be, I'm sure. I might have to just row local next year again. I took this year off competitions with my move (and now my back) but hope to be back somewhere next year.

I believe it's early Feb so there's still hope Mike.

Paris as a venue is nice, apart from the city itself. The races are overall very well joined. And..... The french are not super tall so not everybody is a giant. Makes a changes, normally I am one of the shortest if not the shortest guy in my field, in france less so.
Races will be very different from this year, 90% of the field, us rowers, won,t be there, those will all be french now. Do think it would be nice to get a real sponsor and get more rowers in with price money. 20 times sub 6 is nice, but there are lots of rowers who can do that.
Get aussies, GB, Dutch, eastern Europa etc in. That would be a race.

Other top race would be Essen Kettwig/Germany. 95% plus german only, but boy what a level.
