About those trunks

They were still around in the mid '70s, though we only wore them for races and then only in the lower boats. Ours were dark blue, though, so they weren't as, um, prominent.

Just one more thing guys,

From now on, we are going to ban the knitted jersey swim trunks.


Nice abs on those guys.

Negative body fat %

Where did they row to -- England and back in the same afternoon?
