The team flew out to Boston early Friday morning for the 53rd Head of the Charles Regatta. After rigging up the boats and taking a quick practice lap down the course the Irish headed back to the hotel before the Alumni race on Saturday and two Collegiate races on Sunday.
This year, ND alumni got together to race a 4+ at the Charles. The crew was coxed by the team's very own head coach, Michael Lehmann, and raced hard to a 31st place finish.
On Sunday, the Irish started off the day in the Men's Collegiate 8+ event. In the first time in a few years that ND has entered an eight at the Charles the team moved up from bow number 33 to a 13th place finish. The Irish ended the day with the Men's Collegiate 4+ where the crew took a 17th place finish out of 41 boats. Both crews finished in the top half of their event which means the Irish will be returning to the Charles to race again next year.
