Next week I am going to get on the river and start scouting out camera
placements for my thesis project on the Head of the Charles.
(For those of you who don't know about this there is a posting on this
board somewhere, if you can't find it just write and I'll tell you the
details of the program.)
I would like to hear from those of you who have raced in the HOTC to
give me your thoughts on the placements. Where on the course are the critical
areas? Where are the places most difficult to pass? Where are the most
challenging areas to turn? Where does the body start to give out?
I'll have eight cameras the day of the race, one at the start, one at the
finish, so I would like to hear you ideas on where the other six should
go and why.
I've already received so much help from all of you. I'm keeping a list of
those folks who have been particularly helpful and you'll all get a free
copy of the finished product.
Oh by the way, I have never rowed before (crew is not a big sport in
semi-rural Georgia where I grew up) but because of this project I am
falling in love with the sport. I've been working out on a Concept II
(nearly lost my lunch after a 2500 once,) and hope to try my hand on
the river when I get back to Boston.
Thanks again for all the help.
