Join legendary coaches & athletes Jim Dietz and Mark Wilson for a lively discussion full of insight, good stories, and practical tips for the fall head racing season – from the venerable Head of the Charles to the Ohio, Schuylkill, Hooch, and Secret City; and probably a few more!

Dietz & Wilson are the co-founders of All-American Rowing Camp and have logged many perfect meters together and individually. Dietz has raced in 56 of the 57 Head of the Charles regattas, in addition to several Olympic roles as competitor and coach. The two met at the Coast Guard Academy where Wilson was a rower and Dietz a coach.
