Henley-on-Thames, England - Happy 4th of July!! Hope the weather there is hot and sunny and accomodating of cook-outs and parades!! The weather here is as it has been for going on three weeks: cold wet and windy--between practices we try to watch Wimbledon on TV but the matches are so backed up due rain postponements that we haven't actually seen any live playing.
Just writing to let you know that the racing for HRR begins today and the freshmen men's eight will compete in this first round at 11:00am. The varsity men begin tomorrow and we start on Friday.
Best, John and Phoebe
