Thanks to everyone who came out to ICRI this past weekend! In attendance were crew teams from DePaul, Saint Louis University, University of Saint Thomas, University of Chicago, and Kansas University. Unfortunately, after careful consideration from the coaches and referees the water was deemed unsafe to row due to intense wind and foot and a half swells. By 9 am the waves were white capped and got worse as the morning progressed.
In recognition of the tragic incident at Northwestern, all teams present took a moment of silent remembrance for Mohammed Ramzan. Teams wore purple wristbands, proceeds going towards the Ramzan family, and purple socks.
On Sunday, Chicago Training Center, Fox Valley Rowing Club and Crystal Lake Rowing Club raced on the course. The water corporate and provided a great foundation for hopefully many more high school races.
