Favorite crew memory:

“My favorite crew memory is flipping a boat for the first time. I ended up trying to swim the boat in very unsuccessfully, and flipped another boat as they tried to help me. We were lucky not to drown given how hard we were all laughing.”

Claire 2How did I get involved:

“In high school, the girl who gave me a ride home started rowing, so I had to join the team or walk home, and I haven’t looked back since.”
