Some say there are those that have flipped a single and those who are going to. At a championship regatta flipping your single usually means you won't see the podium any time soon. At the 2014 ACRA National Championship James Anglin of UCSB had other ideas. more
>The New Zealand Men's Pair of Hamish Bond and Eric Murray have dominated their event, going unbeaten since 2009. This photo shows them during the last few strokes of their A Final win at World Cup II; by an astounding 10.5 seconds. more
Here's a photo from the Knecht Cup back in April. It's of VCU sculler Bill Weirich following his win in his flight on Sunday morning of the regatta. This image is unique in that his port is perfectly parallel to the water with his hand off the oar and it only lasted for a split second. more
The cox toss following a big win is one of my favorite things to photograph as no two tosses are the same and you never know what will happen...other than the UW men trying to set some new height record. more
his is a photo of the Wisconsin Men's Freshmen 8+ this year at IRAs. They rowed what has been called the "Battleship Rig." Two starboards in stern pair, four ports in the engine room, and two starboards in bow pair. more
Celebrations make for some of the best rowing photos, so we'll probably seeing quite a few in this space over the next month. First up is the Long Beach Junior Men's Youth 8+ following their win at Youth Nationals. more

It felt like the lake was giving me some help; somehow on the morning after a big rowing event, or in this ca more
On row2k's last outing with the US junior teams, both of the local eagle juniors came out to watch practice, swooping and sparring in mid-air, and then finally alighting on two adjacent treetops to watch the crews. Call it a coincidence, call it a sign, but go ahead and call out Go USA!
A quick update from last week's racing at USRowing's Elite National Championships that featured most of the athletes in the US men's lightweight and heavyweight sweep camps. The racing was intense as both squads finalize selection prior to the Lucerne World Cup on July 12-14.
row2k has pulled together a gallery of more or less all of the images of Harry Parker that have appeared on the site since 1997. Turns out there were less than 100 as Harry was fairly elusive (from a row2k perspective) at the major regattas. I would have thought we had more since there are currently 281,652 images on the site.
