row2k was formed in Spring 1997 in response to the utter absence of rowing information about a couple championships, especially the EAWRC Sprints, at which Ed Hewitt had coached and still helps to run. After posting race times, dates, and directions to Lake Waramaug to rec.sport.rowing a few dozen times in a few days, Ed threw up some homemade HTML and got the word out. row2k was born.
row2k has since developed into a heavily trafficked rowing Website covering events & results, rowing classifieds, information on college rowing programs, camps and access to other rowing links.
