Harvard Crew Alumni Race in China; Follow the Blog

A group of Harvard heavyweight crew alumni is in China racing in the 2011 International Regatta.

Following a few days of practice at Newell Boathouse and more than 24 hours of travel from Boston to Chengdu, the crew began practicing and competing over the weekend. In their first race, they placed fifth of 12 teams, beating crews from Oxford, Cambridge and Yale.

Fans can follow the group here on their blog.
