All Roads Lead to Camp Bob!
Rowers, coaches and chaperones all report a great and productive time during our annual Spring Break training camp at Camp Bob Cooper in Summerton, South Carolina.
The camp motto of “Eat. Sleep. Row.” is spot on. Rowers raced in pairs (boats of 2) to gain experience and improve technique. Most rowers had the chance to race fours and we conducted seat races for all boats. We even had a 12 boat race – all of the Yorktown boats – racing down Lake Marion to end one of our many productive days.
The weather could not have been more beautiful. Sunshine 80 degrees and low wind make perfect conditions for rowing. We even had time to jump in the lake and swim a few times. Campfires, talent shows and more kept rowers entertained and connected during the (rare) downtime off the lake.
Last but not least, we had a drone in attendance for Camp Bob 2017. Click here to view the footage
Great rowing. Great weather. Great teamwork. Go Yorktown!
