Yale Takes on Brown in Season Opener

Yale Takes on Brown in Season Opener

NEW HAVEN, Conn.- Yale’s heavyweight crews open their season when Brown visits the Gilder Boathouse this Saturday. Five races will take place on the morning of Apr. 3, beginning at 10:30 a.m. 

Last year’s encounter with Brown in Providence, R.I., left the Bulldogs empty-handed. The Bears swept all three races: varsity, second varsity and freshman. Yale will race Brown in five events this year: the varsity, second varsity, third varsity and freshman eights, as well as a four.

On the upcoming Brown race, Captain Lucas Spielfogel noted, “There’s no question Brown will be fast. However, history means nothing to us. We will look to beat them.” 

Order of Events:

4+ - 10:30 a.m.

3V8 - 10:50 a.m.

F8 - 11:10 a.m.          

JV8 - 11:30 a.m.

V8 - 11:50 a.m.

A spectator bus will leave from Payne Whitney Gym at 10:15 a.m.
