Preliminary arrangements for the University crew schedule include an innovation in the form of a training trip to Annapolis during the week of the spring vacation for both the first and second crews, with races against the Naval Academy crews at the end of the week. During the trip the crews will be the guests of the Navy oarsmen. The complete details have not yet been arranged.
In late years the University crews have spent the spring recess in Cambridge, except in 1908, when the crew spent a few days at Annapolis. This trip should give a good deal of stimulus to the early season rowing and help develop the speed of the crew over the two-mile course.
It also seems to be settled that the date of the dual race with Cornell will be Tuesday, May 26, unless something unforeseen makes it necessary to change the date. Although this follows very closely the Cornell Regatta at Ithaca with Yale and Princeton on Saturday, May 23, it has been decided upon as the best date possible. Both the University and Freshman crews will compete over the one and seven-eights mile course in the Basin.
