Time Trial for Yale Crew
This morning the Yale university eight, accompanied by the freshman eight paddled about two miles on the Thames at a slow pace. The university and freshman four-oared boats went up stream, racing a short distance and finishing even.
In the afternoon Coach Kennedy put the university crew over the four-mile course for the third time this season under the watch. The slow time, 27 minutes, does not indicate what the crew is capable of, because the men rowed down stream against wind and tide. The freshman eight raced the university boat for the first two miles and was ahead at the mile flag, but then fell off, passing the second mile flag off the Navy Yard about a length behind. Both crews rowed a slow stroke, except near their finish. The university four-oar went about two and a half miles in short stretches down stream, but returned in one stretch rowing hard. The freshman four-oar had an easy seven-mile row down stream to Cow Point, and back to the quarters.
