Donation of the "Class of 2007"

Purchased through the generosity of Alumni & Friends, with the naming gift from alumni of 2007 - Chris Bowley, Brian Chorney and Nate Uber. Brian did the honors of christening the shell at the alumni regatta. The shell is a 2011 Pocock Mid/Heavyweight 8+ purchased from Cornell University.

Two other boats, the Perseverance and Grandma Liz, were also christened at the spring alumni regatta. To see information for the other two shells donated click these links: Perseverance and Grandma Liz
