GW Rowing Winter Training Blog Day #4

The round trip row from the Stewards Foundation Boathouse to the Sulpher Springs Water Tower has been an annual tradition for the GW Women's Rowing team for the past four years.

Early Sunday morning, Coach Carcich took out a boat of eight rowers to make the long 13.5 mile row up the Hillsborough River. The Sulpher Springs Water Tower was built in 1927 by realtor and developer Josiah Richardson with the goal of acquiring a dependable water supply for his very own amusement park and community along the Hillsborough River. Overall, this morning's long and strenuous row gave us the opportunity to really think about our goals for late Spring and what it will take to accomplish those goals. The annual "Tower Rower" will continue to be a fun and challenging tradition for future GW crews and we are excited to keep this momentum going throughout the remainder of our winter training trip.
