2017 USA U23 M4+ to World Champs

Welcome to the Pacific Northwest, home of the Thunderdome! For the third year in a row, the Seattle Area Rowing Association (SARA) is representing the United States in the M4+ event at the U23 World Championships in Bulgaria. But, we can't do it without your help.

We are Evan Olson (UW '19), Arne Landboe (UW '18), Ben Davison (UW '19), Tenny Federspiel (UW '19) and Rielly Milne (UW '18) coached by Michael Callahan. We are currently living and training in Seattle out of Conibear Shellhouse. While respresenting the Seattle Area Rowing Association, we earned a bid to represent the United States at the U23 World Championships in Plovdiv, Bulgaria from July 19th-23rd.

The cost of travel and competition is entirely self-funded. As you may know, it isnt easy getting to Bulgaria! Our goal is to raise around $5,000 per person in the boat to help cover airfare, equipment, room and board for the trip. Anything helps!

Thank you and GO USA!
