A big thank you to all of our Alumni and Friends that supported our annual Winter fundraiser. Special thanks go to all the alums who had a hand in setting up and organizing the event as well as our Rent-A-Rowers who assisted the night of the event. A great night was had by both the Men’s and Women’s Team Alums and it was a great showing of our Blue Hen pride.
But now time to get serious! The Men’s Team will race this weekend in their first race of 2013. Heavyweights are in Philadelphia to take on Lehigh University while the the Lights travel to Camden to race Georgetown. Both races are Saturday with a tentative schedule starting at 10:30; more details when they become available. Please come down to support the boys if you are able; the more Alums the better!
Thanks again for your continued support of UD Men’s Crew and best of luck to the team as they begin their 2013 campaign! GO UD!

To our Alumni:
Welcome to our new website! We hope that this platform, in conjunction with our Facebook and Twitter accounts, will help facilitate communication between the Men’s Crew events as well as our own. We hope to keep this up-to-date with the latest happenings of Delaware Crew during the season and bring you other interest pieces for your enjoyment. Hopefully, this will not be a unilateral engagement and that we can add spaces for your input: what you have been up to, where have you moved to, new additions to your family, etc. After all, this site was made for ALL members of the University of Delaware Rowing family.
As always, thank you for your continued support of Delaware Rowing; the team cannot compete at such a level without your unwavering support.
