Here’s your weekly opportunity to enjoy tales from others who also love rowing. This weekly round-up is for a short list of interesting, in-depth articles for you to read over the weekend.

This week in the rowing online news several stories caught our eye

  • The first legally blind rowing athlete at the University of Washington, Eleni Engelert and her lovely Guide Dog.

“She’s been a very positive influence on the entire squad,” said Conor Bullis, assistant women’s rowing coach at the UW. “She impressed [the team] with her ability to match the timing in the boat based on sound and how she’s able to use every other sense that she has to be a very, very good rower.”
