For the third time in four years, GLRF hosted a booth at the 2014 Western Intercollegiate Rowing Association (WIRA) Regatta Championship at Lake Natoma, east of Sacramento, California, United States 26 - 27 Apr 2014.


Like the 2014 San Diego Crew Classic, rain (in California?!) threatened to dampen the regatta vibe. Crews practicing on Friday afternoon returned to the shore soaked to the bone. Luckily, the temperature was warm enough that most of the mens crews were happy to strip to the waist (and sometimes a bit lower ...;)) and the womens crews made it a sports bra afternoon !!!! o)


Heavy rain continued through Friday night but stopped at 5:30 am, just before all of the vendors began to set up. The races started on time and the wind didn't pick up until Sunday midday. Sunday's championships victories went to a variety of talented crews: University of California, Santa Barbara, Western Washington University, Sacramento State University, Loyola Marymount University, and San Diego State University, among many of the victors.


GLRF was happy to welcome visitors at our booth from almost every school at the regatta. As usual, the wild and crazy spandex shorts and tights were the big hit although many of the rowers stopped to ogle the naked rowing calendars. The GLRF Bisweptual shirts and Sweet Release shirts were once again the big hits.
