US Junior Women Sweepers win 3 silver medals at World’s
For the first time in US Junior rowing history the women’s team won a medal in all of the sweep events at the World Championships. Each crew won silver medals in Bulgaria in August, 2012. The women’s team was lead by head coach Liz Trond, CT Boat Club, coach of the four. Liz was assisted by coach Sandy Armstrong, Marin RA, coach of the eight and coach Cass Cunningham, Oakland strokes, coach of the pair. It took a true collaborative effort on the part of the coaches and athletes to win a silver in each event as well as a selection system that allows for the identification and development of our young rowing talent nationwide. Job well done!
The unprecedented performance of these fine young athletes highlighted the strong showing and effort by the entire Junior squad including a silver medal by the Junior women’s quad. Congratulations to all!
Vespoli is proud to provide all the sweep boats for the US men and the women at this event. We thank them for their confidence in our equipment.

Vespoli USA, the largest and most successful boat builder in the US has just issued a “Boat Speed Challenge” on their website–and they are using the PowerView System.
With Powerview units aboard, Vespoli can go far beyond the tradition “demo row” and let coaches skip the annual ritual of asking the crew “which boat did you like better?” or “did that boat feel fast?”
Instead, the PowerView data Vespoli can collect will allow coaches coaches to ask, and answer, the two questions they really care about when it come to selecting a hull: Is it fast? and Is it right for my crew?
Thanks to PowerView, both Vespoli and the coaches who take the Challenge now have a way to KNOW the answers to those questions–and the PowerView unit allows them to find those answers in a single practice session.
Is it fast?
Splits can tell you about PART of the boat’s speed, but PowerView goes beyond simple speed measurement. The system captures GPS position and exacting measurements of check and acceleration in three dimensions.
The result? A synchronized look at MORE than the splits, and a glimpse at how the boat is moving to create that speed on the drive. Coaches can see how set and acceleration on the drive in differently shaped and sized hulls affects the speed numbers they get everyday–and see how each hull design runs on the recovery to hold that speed.
Is it right for my crew?
Your next hull is a big investment for any size program–and a decision you’ll have to train with everyday. While you can know your crew’s power and the splits they can hit at race pace, PowerView’s accelerometers gauge precisely how your crew picks up the shell on the drive, and how their movements on the recovery in a given hull work to maintain that speed. Do you know how the crew interacts with shell to hit a given split? PowerView can show you–and then you can pick the boat that optimizes how your crew rows.
Vespoli, USA, has been building winning designs for thirty years, and rigorously testing every design. When they heard about PowerView, they knew it was the ultimate tool to measure boats and how fast they really are. The proof? Vespoli tested PowerView, and they were sold on the system after just one row.
We think you will be, too. Take Vespoli up on the Boat Speed Challenge, and see what PowerView can do for your crew.

Wouldn’t you like to know which boat is really faster? You can, if you use PowerView (www.pvrow.com). This is a newly released product that measures true boat speed. No hype, no spin just objective, honest results. US and Canadian National teams are working with this equipment and we just acquired two complete units.
Do you want to take the boat speed challenge? If you want to determine if your Empacher, Filippi, Hudson, Pocock, Resolute or even the “new” Chinese/Quantum/Wintech is faster than a Vespoli E hull contact us. We will bring two PowerView units and a Vespoli E hull to your boathouse for you to trial. Call Dave Trond at 203-843-8434 or Mike Vespoli 203-887-6119 for the details.
