Eight hearts must beat as one in an eight oared shell or you don’t have a crew!

Originally established for alumni in the Classes of 1974 – 1978 who rowed in Navy lightweight crews coached by LT Jon Eric VanAmringe, USN (Yale 1970); since its inception, interest has grown to all Friends of Navy Lightweight Crew!
