For the Saturday blog we are going to do something different. With the schedule change for tomorrow, we want to give you a little insight to what is going to happen. We raced in 14 semi finals today. We started with 16 on Friday and missed out on two. On SaturdayIMG_9966the Junior Women’s coxed four and the Senior Men’s quad did not advance to the finals. However, there we are racing in 12 finals! I think only one school has more (E.L. Crossley – 15 finals from 22 entries). Here is the schedule posted outside my door. We set the curfew to 9:00 pm and lights out at 9:30 pm. I will write a brief summary of each of the events. The top line is theScreen Shot 2016-06-04 at 11.16.22 PMtime the student-athletes are leaving the hotel. On the water is the 30 minutes before the race and of course, the race time.

There were three semi finals in the senior men’s 8+ event. We drew Upper Canada College as our main competition. UCC blasted out of the gates and cruised to a six second win over BCS. St.Georges won the second heat with the fastest time in the event. We will be racing out of lane six with the third fastest qualifying time.

“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”

Summary: Tomorrow’s storm is on the horizon and the athletes are used to this with the delays we get at Brentwood during our regatta. There are 216 crews racing in 36 events tomorrow. We are in 12 of those finals. It is going to be a great day for Brentwood. Until then.
