Rowing in Mainz (Steffen Hauth)

[singlepic id=4530 w=320 h=240 float=left]Like the other alumni, I will continue the tradition and also report from my rowing life outside Jacobs. After my time in Bremen at Jacobs I found a job in the R&D Department at Sirona Dental Systems in Bensheim and hence, I returned to my home and joined the rowing club in Mainz. In Mainz we row on the river Rhine and sometimes on the river Mainz. The current is very strong and the water is often choppy. So rowing on the Rhine makes only fun in Gig-Boats. For rowing in racing boats, we use branches of the Rhine. In general the Acker or the Querdamm....

And where the heck is that? While being still enrolled in Jacobs as a PhD, I am doing my research work in the company Schott Solar in Alzenau,...

Head of the Amstel – Amsterdam 2012

[singlepic id=4469 w=320 h=240 float=left]On the 17th of March at 6 am in the morning 17 rowers, two coxes and our coach Lars hit the road for Amsterdam. Once we arrived there one bus as well as one car including one of our coxes had to park quite far away from the Boathouse since there were so many Rowing teams arriving. Too bad we forgot Matzes wheelchair in the other bus, down at the Amstel. Luckily Anne had her bike with her and Matze soon had a new favourite vehicle. We deloaded Frieda and rigged the boat. Lars decided to cut off our rudder, since the curves of the river are very tight and a shorter...
