Who did the CRASH-B sprints?

Hi there,

I was just wondering how many of you out there participated
in the 1993 CRASH-B World Indoor Rowing Championships at MIT
on February 14?

I just started using a Concept II erg this winter in my bicycle
racing training plan.  I don't have any experience sculling, but
I am thinking about going to a sculling camp at Craftsbury Common,
Vermont this spring or summer.  I think it's a great sport! Thanks
for creating this newsgroup!

Anyway, I rowed an 8:46 for 2500m.  I heard that the winner pulled
a sub-7:50 time.  Does anyone have the top 10 results?  Also, where
can you get printed results sheets for the entire competition?  I
would like to see how I ended up against the world's best! :)

I also rowed in the CRASH B, but I'm definitely not that good, I rowed
a 9:26. Not spectacular, but I'm more of a long-distance guy. It was a
fun event. My first time in a rowing competition. Later...

    Ah...the winning time in the men's open event was around
  7:20 (I think)...I have the all results somewhere....your time is quite
  good, actually.  How old are you?  
    Craftsbury is a great place to learn sculling.  I've been there three
  times (two weekend sessions and one week long session).  I'd recommend
  the week long session if you have the time.  My sculling improved
  dramatically after that one.  You get quite a bit of individual attention
  on the water and the food is great!

Who cares?  Ergs don't float.

  Which is a good lead in to *MY* question...What is a good off-season training
method if a person can't get to water, eh?

I should have mentioned that I am in the lightweight class (157 lbs) and
25 years old.  Hopefully, when the sprints roll around next year, I will
have more erg training under my belt.  I found out about them a bit
late this year!

Sounds great!  I've got a bit of extra vacation this year. :)
