Washington Rowing, along with Windermere Real Estate, welcomes the German men's and women's national teams, the Boston University men and the UCLA women to the 33rd annual Windermere Cup, scheduled for Saturday, May 4, 2019.
Washington's men's and women's rowing teams won all of the races in which they were entered Sunday in the 39th Head of the Lake regatta. The UW women won both the championship and junior varsity eights, while the men won three different eights races, the championships fours and the championship single sculls, as Ben Davison won that event for the second time.
The UW pair of senior Calina Schanze and junior Tabea Schendekehl won the women's collegiate pairs competition and the Huskies' top entry in the women's collegiate eight won its race Saturday at the Head of the American regatta on Lake Natoma.
Washington's women's rowing team will send a large contingent of rowers to the Head of the American this Saturday. The Head of the American is held on Lake Natoma, the annual home of the Pac-12 Championships, and frequent site of the men's and women's national championship regattas.
Washington Rowing is rich in tradition. From George Pocock and Hiram Conibear, through innumerable championships and Olympic regattas to the present-day successes, the UW men's and women's programs have plenty of reason to be proud.
