After a great success in Hamburg against the HSBA rowing at Jacobs continues to grow and grow. This year 33 men and women are rowing for our university, but not only is the team growing larger it is also getting more professional.

The team has gotten a new boat, an Empacher sculling four, in order to accommodate the increased number of rowers. It was officially christened at the Abrudern by President Treusch. The boat “Lotti” is named in honor of Lotti and Conrad Naber, who have been supporting Jacobs University since it was founded.
