Harvard Training Quarters Red Top, Conn. June 20, 1911.--The University crew was given a second time trial this afternoon and went over the course in 20 minutes, 26 seconds, the fastest time made in the last four years. Starting opposite Red Top with the Freshman crew, at a stroke of 36 to the minute, the latter were quickly dropped a length behind. At the half-mile flag the stroke had been lowered to 32 and at the mile to 30, which was maintained until the three-mile mark was reached. The Freshman eight finished three lengths in the rear at the Navy Yard. At the three-mile mark extremely rough water was encountered, which had forced the Yale eight to give up their time trial about half an hour previously. Just before the last half-mile was started the wash from a passing steamer broke up the swing for several strokes. The beat was then gradually quickened, reaching 36 at the finish. The wind and tide were following the crew, but the water in the last mile was so rough as to offset much of the advantage, so the showing made was very creditable.
In the morning the University eight went down to the Navy Yard and returning took three quarter-miles in stretches at a high stroke. The fours were given short rows both morning and afternoon. The University and Freshman crews paid their annual visit to the Yale quarters going up river in the John Harvard. After their return they heard the detailed returns of the Harvard-Yale game at New Haven.
