Rowing

Calcutta Rowing Club (CRC), Kolkata, West Bengal, India:

While in high-school I used to row at the Calcutta Rowing Club (CRC) on the Rabindra Sarovar Lakes in Kolkata, India. In addition to competing as a rower representing the club, due to my (light) weight at that time, I also competed as a coxswain for the club in local sprint and head races. This is the solitary photo I have from that time (taken at the CRC dock):



Bair Island Aquatic Center (BIAC), Redwood City, California, USA:

Since 2017 I have been a part of the masters rowing program at the Bair Island Aquatic Center (BIAC) in Redwood City, California where we row in the San Francisco Bay. I have competed for the club as a rower in local regattas such as the Southwest Regionals (Oakland), Gold Rush (Sacramento), Head of the American (Sacramento), and Head of the Lagoon (Foster City). I also compete as a coxswain for the club as needed.

Men's Masters 4+, Head of the Lagoon, 2018 (Foster City Lagoon, Foster City, CA)

In 2018 I represented Team USA as a coxswain for a Coastal Womens 4+ (CW4x+) team from BIAC at the World Rowing Coastal Championships 2018 held in Victoria, Canada.

  

One of the best things in rowing are the views we get to see from the water. At BIAC, we row in the San Francisco Bay and the scenic beauty of the place is spectacular! Here are some photos from our morning practices taken over the last few years from our coach's camera:
