I rowed in regattas at Lincoln park going as far back as 1983, without incident. Maybe someone should have yelled to the white 8, "get off the course!" But, I'm sure everyone was too busy getting their cellphones out, waiting for the inevitable crash, and dreaming of their insta or TikTok numbers.

This is another in a host of nasty crashes at this regatta which is run on a narrow 1k course. This one was at the finish. There is a spot where the rh lane can hit the sides at a narrow spot and another at a slight turn at 600M where two crews are going opposite directions with no buoys between the warmup lane and race lane. I've seen a head-on there also. So far no injuries. Perhaps just a matter of time?
