April 27 update: Audio replay of the Men's Varsity race (see bottom of race report).

The California Bears men's crew, ranked #2 in the nation, beat the previously undefeated Washington Huskies, ranked #3, in one of the oldest crew rivalries in the Country. Cal won the annual Schoch Cup, named after Delos "Dutch" Schoch, a member of Washington's 1936 Olympic eight contingent that won the Olympic gold medal in Berlin and who coached Princeton from 1946 to 1965.

The undefeated Cal's Lady Bears, ranked #2 nationally, beat their arch rivals from Washington, a crew seeking an upset to move them up in national polls from their #11 ranking. Cal won the Simpson Cup, a trophy donated in 2003 by longtime Husky Crew supporters, Hunter and Dottie Simpson, whose daughter rowed at Cal. The Simpson Cup replaces the Big Oar trophy that was retired in 2002 after 22 years.

Volunteers — JAMCO is completely run by volunteers. We thank the following people who helped us bring you this live broadcast from Seattle: Chase Stoudt at the start, Dave Marshall at 500 meters, Will Teal at 1000 meters, J. P. Marquart at 1500 meters and Kip Nordby at the finish line, with a special “thank you” to Mike Callahan, Assistant Men's Rowing Coach at UW, who coordinated our local coverage in Seattle.

Unofficial Times — JAMCO takes its own finishing times and those are the first finishing times to appear on JAMCO's real time race result pages. Those pages are marked “unofficial” because the Regatta Committee is also taking finishing times, and its times are the “official” times. The Regatta Committee provides JAMCO with its “official” times after the races are over, and JAMCO then enters the “official” times on its reports. Therefore, there may be a considerable delay in replacing the “unofficial” times with “official” times, but the order of finish should not change.

Color Coding — Real time movements by crews during each 500 meter interval are highlighted by different colors. Gold (yellow) crews are closing on the leader in the current 500. Silver (light blue) crews are closing on the second place crew, but falling further behind the leader. Bronze (orange) crews are closing on the third place crew, but falling further behind the leader and the second place crews. White crews are falling further behind all three leading crews. Quite often, when a crew turns gold, it takes the lead in the next 500.
