Sunny and warm in Oakland today, and Lake Merritt is a bustling pile of rowers and boats on day 1 of Nationals. Racing kicked off this morning, shortly after 8am, and will continue until just after 6pm.
With “five-minute centers” (five minutes between start times), the schedule is packed with folks from all over the country as well as some of our northerly neighbors.
This morning, Station L had nine entries in eight events; seven of those boats made finals. This afternoon brings nine events — those final seven plus two straight finals.
We’ll do our best to post recaps @ the end of each day, but you can watch results live on HereNow. Filter by “Station L” to see just our crews, or take a moment and drink in all the times and boats you please.
