experienced in its whole history. Unfortunately, the Lebanese and Beirut rowing center was situated across the channel from the cargo port. “Despite the distance the training center was all but destroyed with the building collapsing around the boats”, FISA, World Rowing reported.

Despite the dead and the homeless inhabitants, we are not aware of any victims of our rowing community. Tony writes: Lebanon is hurting. It’s a hard time. Many lives lost. People suffering. Major property damage to tens of thousands of homes including my parent’s apartment (but we’re out of Lebanon). So, our damage is minimal compared to the masses out there. Please pray for Lebanon.

Fyi, The Lebanese National Rowing center is located right across the channel from where the explosion occurred. Less than 200 m away. My buddies sent me those pics of the damage of our beloved boathouse where i trained and raced for almost 2 decades. Let’s stand with Lebanon now, and rebuild the city and the boathouse when the time is right.”
