With the IRA falling victim to the COVID-19 crisis this year, row2k offers you our Virtual IRA 2020; we've taken 16 of the fastest IRA Varsity Eight Champion crews going back to the 2000 IRA, and created matchups using our proprietary seeding formula. The top vote-getting crews from each matchup will move on to the next round each week, until a champion is crowned.

Voting for Round I is open from Monday, April 20th until Friday, April 24th (5pm EST)

1895 Columbia, aka the "Havana un-tren" ominously awaits virtual funding for virtual Henley #slingshot #seniornight

2001 Cal and 2011 UW losing their respective matchups is laughable, but ok.

Yale 2019 was probably the fastest collegiate boat in history. Their pedigree is unmatched - prob the majority of them are future olympians. Cal 2001 was great, but just can't hold up. Just an unfortunate first round matchup.

Agreed on Cal, not sure why the same would count for UW though
