Head of the Schuylkill, 10/24/2015

Here is a video I made of a rowing race my rowing team competed in on the Schuylkill River in Philadelphia, PA.  I mounted my daughter’s GoPro Hero camera on a bike helmet and sweet-talked my coxswain into wearing the helmet during the race.  The footage turned out pretty well.  I rowed in 6 seat in this race, so you can’t see my pretty face for most of the footage.  Nevertheless, the footage is pretty entertaining, from an oarsmen’s perspective.

The accompanying music is from Carmina Burana.

After the race, my girlfriend (Cindy) and I hung out at Crescent Boat Club, on boathouse row, to watch my friend, Tom, assist in a boat christening ceremony.
