On April 5 and 6, 2014, I will be back in San Diego, my California home for more than 30 years until Susan and I moved to L.A. a few years ago. I will be there to proudly coach the Loyola Marymount University Men's Crews at the San Diego Crew Classic. The Crew Classic race weekend has become a favorite occasion to see old friends and reminisce, but this year a couple of my old crews are taking things a step further. The following will appear in this spring's 2014 Regatta Program:
