In a massive effort by Southern California colleges and the American Collegiate Rowing Association (ACRA), CSU Long Beach has joined the efforts of The Rowing Channel (TRC) consortium to bring live webcasts of major regattas to our ever-growing community of alums, their families, and our community. Other SoCal institutions include Orange Coast College, who had a widely popular webcast of the 2014 Newport Regatta. CSULB will add the Southern California Opening Day Regatta and the new Naples Island Collegiate Challenge to the lineup of annual events. In addition, regional events such as the Western Intercollegiate Rowing Association Championships (WIRA) and the annual national championships of the ACRA will be the flagship events of the channel.
It is the goal of the consortium to pool together resources, establish best practice, and obtain the proper manpower to make this operation possible.
TRC is operated by Netrendity Network Services, a provider of infrastructure consulting.

Long Beach State Crew traveled to the American Collegiate Rowing Association’s National Championships in Oklahoma City, OK, to race their WIRA-titled crews from earlier this month.
The regatta faced some tough course conditions with 35+ mile per hour head winds and choppy waterways causing two major delays throughout the weekend. The Men’s Pair (M2+) events went into semi-finals with Long Beach State making it into the petite finals with all small-boat event becoming cancelled Sunday morning. The Women’s Lightweight 4+ took on a close fight in the time trials for lane placement on Saturday between all crews finishing within 12 seconds of each other while faced with these tough water conditions. The Beach pulled off a run of 8:58.301. Their grand final on sunday placed them in fourth with a time of 9:12.67. The University of Kansas took home the gold with a winning time of 8:51.83, followed by Michigan State, 8:57.4, Georgia Tech, 9:02.38, The Beach, and trailing behind, Northwestern Crew, 9:20.2, and Ohio State at 9:31.48. It was a tough-faced event for these ladies and we are proud of their running.
The team took some time to sightsee the area including the Oklahoma City Bombing site and the Chesapeake Olympic Training Center.
