Rowing in Rio: Coaches pull out the duct tape
August 7, 2016
Beth and I spent the morning taping the riggers and making Emily’s single an ocean going vessel. The park is a giant arts and crafts scene and everyone is getting in on making anti wave blockers. Coaches, athletes and boatbuilders are sharing ideas, scraps of carbon fiber and tape. Races have been delayed, the report is that 2 boats swamped and three flipped during the morning practice session. The waiting game begins.
