Rowing in Rio: More wind and cancellations
August 10, 2016
Rowing certainly develops patience and the ability to readily change plans. We came to the course this morning early (4am wake-up) in order to make sure Emily got the best water to practice in. Well at 7am there were whitecaps at the starting line and after 6k of rowing the singles were sent in. Races were cancelled for the day and the practice area was cut down to 1000 meters. Boats were allowed back out, but with the weather predicted to get worse we moved forward with new plans for the afternoon.
