Nancy Diessner is our technical producer, and I might add, a wonderful artist and sculler at Community Rowing in Boston. Thank you, Nancy!

First, Tara tells us a little about her Seize the Oar organization and why we should be rowing in the magnificent Pacific Northwest. Then Mark brings in a little more West Coast news with our club spotlight on Seattle Scullers, plus some coastal rowing players in the San Francisco area.

(Please note: we had some minor technical difficulties with Tara’s audio, but it quickly improved. Thanks for your tolerance!)
