I followed the students of UdeM (Université de Montréal) rowing team during their training for a few months, prior to their presence at the Dad Vail Regatta.
The Aberdeen Dad Vail Regatta is the largest collegiate regatta in the United States, with over 100 colleges and Universities from the U.S. and Canada. Thousands of student athletes gather to compete during the weekend of the second Saturday of May. It takes place in East Park in Philadelphia, USA.
The students of UdeM rowing team were the only francophone students of North America competing in the Regatta. Most of them where new to the sport and had only been training for a few months prior to the Regatta.
