Northeastern rowing returned to the world stage in 2013 to participate in the Henley Royal Regatta. England's famed River Thames has provided the storied NU program with some of its most memorable moments. The 2013 appearance was Northeastern's seventh in the renowned event.
"This week at the Henley Royal Regatta has been a huge success in every possible way that one might measure it,” said athletic director Peter Roby at the conclusion of the trip. “People have recognized our presence here — from the participation of alumni, to the way our crews have performed, to the way we've represented Northeastern. It is all that we had hoped it would be. It is motivation for us to continue to do all we can to position our men's rowing program for national and international prominence and continue to engage our alumni."
